We're delighted to welcome a new team member to Millennium School: Ann Wang, our first Operations Director. Ann brings deep talent and passion for managing schools, having begun her career as a high school English teacher in San Francisco, later shifting into education management roles. Most recently she served as Senior Project Manager for the KIPP Foundation, where she supported dozens of schools across the country. At Millennium, she will "keep the trains running on time" and more, helping to build a foundation of operational excellence as we launch this fall. We look forward to introducing her to the wider Millennium community in the months ahead. Her full bio is below:
Ann feels most energized when she is creating and fine-tuning systems that promote student learning. She is looking forward to keeping the trains running and on time at Millennium School, managing the infrastructure and logistics that will allow Millennium's community of students, parents, teachers, and staff to focus and thrive.
Ann is fortunate to have spent her career working with education organizations that are innovating on school design and practices. As the Senior Project Manager on the Research & Evaluation team at the KIPP Foundation, Ann supported various multi-state and cross-team data collection, reporting, and assessment administration projects. Prior to joining the KIPP Foundation, Ann completed the Coro Fellows Program in Public Affairs, which provided her with a rich set of foundational leadership skills, along with opportunities to apply those skills through contract work across the public and private sectors. She began her career in education by teaching 9th, 10th, and 11th grade English at George Washington High School in San Francisco Unified School District and serving as a Teach for America corps member. Ann holds a B.A. in English and Policy Studies and a Secondary English Education Certification from Rice University, as well as a Master's in Public Administration from San Francisco State University.
