Sukh started her career in human rights through an international fellowship in Chile, Rwanda and India. Transitioning to education via Teach for America, Sukh served in various teaching and school leadership roles within HoustonISD.  Sukh's passion in education is rooted in creating an equitable playing field for all students and empowering educators to design world class school models for our most underserved populations in partnership with community.
