Cyberbullying in Maryland Schools

Assignment: Build a responsive design website with original reporting. For this project, I developed and built a mobile-friendly site (using Foundation) and then reported on the issue of cyberbullying in Maryland schools. This was a capstone final for my Interactive Design and Development course at Maryland.

My story was the first to reveal that almost half of all Catholic city schools were converted to public charter or Head Start schools.
