Hassaan currently works with school districts who are part of ERS’ ESSER National Network, a community of district leaders focused on recovery and redesign for impact, equity, and sustainability. As a part of this work, he is supporting a number of districts making strategic investments in high-dosage tutoring initiatives on implementation and continuous improvement.
Prior to joining ERS, Hassaan taught high school math in his hometown of San Jose, CA. After four years of teaching and seeing his mentees through to graduation, Hassaan decided to pursue his Masters in Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School. While in graduate school, Hassaan worked at the U.S. Department of Education on analyzing the department’s priorities around discretionary grant programs, and was also a fellow at the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Education in Washington D.C. where he designed a framework for assessing out of school time programs.
Outside of ERS, Hassaan leads a technology non-profit creating digital health systems for low-resource settings. Hassaan enjoys biking around Boston, developing his photography and pottery skills, and spending time with friends and family.
