About

After graduating from MMC in 2016, Gibson began work as a Crime Center Communications Analyst for Citizen App, inputting real-time crime information across New York City. In August 2017, he joined Uncommon Schools, a network of 45 public charter schools across New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts, as Regional Schools Coordinator.

 “My political science education has informed much of my work supporting socio-economically disadvantaged students of color. I think there’s a lot that is either misunderstood about charter schools or unfairly stereotyped.
