Joy Resmovits is currently education editor at The Seattle Times. Prior to that, she worked as education reporter at the Los Angeles Times and The Huffington Post. Both she and her Spencer Fellow colleague, Mitra Kalita, took positions at LA Times after their Spencer year together.
Resmovits had been writing about schools ever since she was an undergraduate covering New York City’s public schools for the Columbia Daily Spectator. After graduating cum laude from Barnard College in 2010 with an English major that focused on the works of Geoffrey Chaucer, she wrote for the Wall Street Journal and worked as a Fellow at the Jewish Daily Forward. She has also contributed to the New York Daily News, Education Update and the St. Louis Beacon.
She used her Spencer Fellowship year to assess the state of education for American students with disabilities.
