Jesse Robinson, a math and leadership coach with nearly 20 years experience in curriculum, assessment and teaching, has been selected as the district’s new Director, Curriculum, Assessment and Instruction.

Robinson holds a master’s degree in the School Leadership Program, Principal Strand, Harvard Graduate School of Education; a master’s degree in teaching secondary history from Boston College; and a bachelor’s degree in history from Oberlin College. She’s conversationally fluent in Spanish and likes to hike.
