Director, School Design
Genevieve directs ERS’ organizational strategy around school design, which includes supervision of district partnerships, research and curriculum development. She leads ERS teams in working directly with schools to align resources with improvement priorities and with the system’s district office to strengthen the enabling conditions needed to bring strategic designs to scale. Most recently, she led ERS work in Tulsa Public Schools to redesign the annual school improvement planning process, including significant changes to decision-making processes, timelines and tools. Genevieve is also the co-author of ERS’ nationally profiled research paper, Igniting the Learning Engine, on how to re-organize resources for effective teacher professional learning. She continues to lead research around how districts can support schools in designing more equitable student and teacher experiences.
Prior to ERS she was the Massachusetts Policy Director at the advocacy organization Stand for Children, where she led the affiliate’s policy analysis and worked as a lobbyist. Genevieve is also a former middle school English teacher. During her time as a teacher in Los Angeles, Genevieve wrote curriculum and provided training to novice corps members in Teach For America. She later attended the University of Oxford on a Rhodes Scholarship and earned a Doctorate in Social Policy. Her doctoral research focused on urban redevelopment, school choice, and children’s outcomes under the federal HOPE VI housing program.
Genevieve is proud to come from a family of educators—her great-grandfather, grandmother, mother, and mother-in-law were public school teachers, and her father-in-law is a former school principal.
