#WIREDTC 2022 KEYNOTE - Aisha Crumbine

Aisha Crumbine

M.A. Educational Leadership - Houston, Texas

Aisha Crumbine believes the truest act of leadership is knowing and using our strengths to create spaces where others are comfortable and confident to do the same. In her twenty years of experience in education, she has been a teacher and/or administrator in every type of school including: a traditional ISD serving predominantly Black students, the original KIPP Academy charter serving LatinX/Black students, The Kinkaid School (her alma mater) which is an elite private school serving a wealthy/fairly homogenous student body, and back to a traditional public school that had a bit of all of the above. In every one of those places, kids, teachers, administrators and parents alike wanted one thing most of all: to be seen and valued and to have their voices heard.

As a Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator, Aisha is committed to helping parents and educators lead with courage and create space for themselves and our children.

Aisha has served on the board of Breakthrough Houston and Girl Inc. She has a B.A. in English from Trinity University in San Antonio, and an M.A. Educational Leadership from Teachers College at Columbia University, where she was a founding cohort member of the Summer Principals Academy (SPA) Program. She and her husband Dave love talking about parenting, personal leadership, baseball and action movies. Together they have two beautiful children who they are raising to be daring leaders in their own right.
