Sam is a member of the Hartford Public Schools team where he supports the district’s COVID-19 progress monitoring and transition planning work, as well as their systems-level continuous improvement process.
Prior to joining ERS, Sam served as the 8th Grade Math and Algebra 1 teacher at Grizzlies Prep Charter School in Memphis, Tennessee. Outside of the classroom, he also served as a SCORE Tennessee Educator Fellow, a member of the Tennessee State Board of Education’s Charter Application Review Committee, and a Rappaport Institute Public Finance Fellow. Sam earned a B.A. in Political Economy and Urban Studies from Rhodes College, a Certificate in Education Finance from Georgetown University, and an Ed.M in Education Policy and Management from the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
When he is not working, Sam enjoys exploring Boston and the New England region, traveling to each Major League Baseball stadium (17 so far!), and, as a lifelong southerner, eating the best barbeque he can get his hands on.
