Arts Every Day is thrilled to introduce our newest staff member, Michelle Duberry. Michelle is taking over the Schools and Partnerships Manager role from Angela Marroy Boerger, who is moving into our newly-created role of Director of School Programs and Learning. As Arts Every Day grows to serve our school partner community and to establish our USDE-funded initiative, the Baltimore Arts Integration Project, we are proud to increase our staff to support these programs. Michelle brings a wealth of experience to her new role with Arts Every Day and we hope you will join us in welcoming her to our team!
Michelle Duberry was an army brat growing up. She moved all over, including living in Germany. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Africana Studies from the University of Maryland Baltimore County in 2001. Following graduation, she spent a year serving in AmeriCorps as a School/Community Coordinator through Greater Homewood. Michelle then became a middle school teacher, teaching Social Studies to 7th graders in Prince George’s County. Soon after the Baltimore Uprising, following the murder of Freddie Gray, she felt compelled to become a part of Baltimore Racial Justice Action. She has been doing anti-racism work there since. Also during this time, she started a platform called Show Your Luv. The primary goal of this platform is to promote Black-owned businesses.
