Kala Stepter, Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Coordinator
Kala is joining OSA after having taught math at the elementary and middle school level in Washington DC and the Bay Area. As a learner and educator, she enjoys working with students and families to explore our global community, inspire curiosity and innovation through project based learning, and dream of what could be.
