"Kaitlin has worked tirelessly on behalf of the students of the District of Columbia Public Schools. The chancellor and I have both depended on and expected the high quality of writing she has delivered time and time again. I was glad to have Kaitlin on my team."

"I receive many requests for recommendations, but I only write them for people I consider exceptional. This is the case with Kaitlin. Her commitment to education is unmatched, and as a part of my team she has played a key role in what I believe has been the most ambitious urban school reform effort in this country. It did not take long for her to convince me of her competence, her fierce belief in students' abilities, diplomacy in working with students and colleagues, perseverance, or the high quality of her writing that my staff and I have depended on for the last three years. She has the strongest recommendation I can give."

"Working with Kaitlin has been a great experience - she's sharp, talented, and has a gift for finding a voice to communicate even the most difficult messages. She's very dependable and willing to help on anything - a total team player. Kaitlin is a solid writer in complex situations. I've trusted her on numerous occasions to give me feedback or help me figure out how to say something, and she always comes through. She is open to multiple points of view and is able to tie everything together succinctly. I'll miss her as part of the team."
