After studying political science and English, Nadja planned on going to law school, but instead got a job at a FEMA-based program that worked with schools. Her next position, at a non-profit organization, was located in the same building as a Success Academy school. Inspired by the mission, she decided to find the perfect position there.
Nadja is a school leader, responsible for all non-instructional aspects of running the school. She oversees an Operations Team that ensures an immaculate, joyful environment for scholars and teachers and plans all academic and school events. She starts each day with a walk-through of the building to ensure it’s safe and ready for the school day, then heads to the school’s entrance to welcome students.
