If you could have dinner with 1 person who you regard as a leader, who would it be and why?

Cincinnatus because he lead not for the sake of his ambition, but for the greater good of the community–a model of civic virtue and humility.

What motivates you to create social impact?

In order to build a brighter future for the next generation, the public, private and social sector must collaborate and gel resources to activate that potentiality, and I want to be a catalyst of activation.

Host Site Project

We aim to restart and rapidly transform chronically underperforming district schools into extraordinary schools that sustain high achievement over time. Unlike most school management organizations, UP Education is dedicated to partnering with school districts to turn around struggling schools. We are one of the few organizations in the country that is demonstrating consistent and unprecedented success in tackling the challenges of in-district school turnaround. UP Education is pleased that it will be expanding its reach and impact into the Springfield area in the 2016 school year. In preparation, UP seeks a New Sector RISE Fellow to help build the foundation of a successful expansion. UP Education is pleased that it will be expanding its reach and impact into the Springfield area in the 2016 School Year. To prepare for that expansion, UP seeks a New Sector RISE Fellow to help build the foundation of a successful expansion. Primarily, the Fellow will serve as a liaison between UP’s main office and the Springfield School system. The Fellow will examine HR, staffing and teacher evaluation processes in place in the district and ensure that UP’s policies and processes are in alignment and compliance. In addition, the Fellow will also lead a project to build out our data useage capability. As UP grows, it will need systems in that can scale and grow, the Fellow will help us identify and implement new scalable systems that are adaptable to our needs.
