Teaching is the profession that teaches all the other professions. ~ Author Unknown

My goal is to reveal one teacher's humble journey of self-reflection, critical analysis, and endless questioning about my craft of teaching and learning alongside my middle school students.

Gaithersburg doctor named White House fellow by Gazette Staff

Kisha Green Davis of Gaithersburg has been appointed to the 2011-2012 Class of White House Fellows. 

White House fellows typically spend a year working full time with senior White House staff, cabinet secretaries and other top-ranking government officials. They also participate in an education program consisting of roundtable discussions with leaders from the private and public sectors, and trips to study U.S. policy. 

One of 15 fellows this year, Davis will work at the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

A 1996 graduate of Quince Orchard High School, Davis received her medical degree from the University of Connecticut and earned a Master’s in Public Health from Johns Hopkins University. She completed her residency at the University of Maryland.

Davis most recently served as a family physician at Chase Brexton Health Services, where she practiced primary care at a culturally and socioeconomically diverse community health center. She has special interest in HIV/AIDS, women’s health, and diabetes. She has travelled to Zimbabwe, Honduras, and New Orleans on medical mission trips.

Davis lives in Gaithersburg with her husband Everett Davis, assistant principal at Gaithersburg Middle School, and their two sons, Spencer, 4, and Byron, 1. She is the daughter of the Rev. Gerard Green Jr. and Rita Green, who also live in the Quince Orchard area of Gaithersburg.
