CT Humanities is thrilled to welcome Khalil Quotap as the CT Digital Heritage Program Coordinator. He will help develop CTH’s statewide digital initiative program, working with organizations and individuals across the state to make the state’s cultural heritage more accessible to the public.
A former New Haven Social Studies teacher, he began his career in museum education at the Connecticut Historical Society, before serving as Director of Education at the Institute for American Indian Studies in Washington, CT, and Director of Education at the Wood Museum & Library in South Windsor, CT. Prior to Connecticut Humanities, Khalil was the Director of Education and Engagement at the New Haven Museum, where he brought the history of New Haven to adults and children of all ages. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science from Southern Connecticut State University.
Khalil explains, “Growth is important in my career journey, trying always to move forward and learn new skills. Moving from classroom teaching to museum education gave me a unique perspective and the ability to meld the two together. I am excited to be able to do that again with 12 years of experience working in museums across the state and learning new skills at CT Humanities.”
When not working, Khalil is at home in Southington watching something Marvel or Star Wars, or out traveling the state looking for both vintage and new toys and collectibles.
