In her role, Ellen coordinates logistics across the project to help execute this ambitious research agenda.
Prior to coming to the Labs, Ellen spent six years teaching in Title I schools. She taught math at a public high school in the Bronx (through Teach for America) and at a KIPP charter middle school in Newark.
