Michael & Susan Dell Foundation
Technical Program Director, DDE
Austin, Texas
Technical Program Director at Micheal & Susan Dell Foundation responsible for sourcing and managing a portfolio of projects that achieve the Data Driven Education team's vision and further the Ed-Fi Alliance strategic priorities. The DDE team believes that empowered teachers improve outcomes for low income students by providing high quality instruction to meet students learning needs.

The vision requires that teachers, principals, and administrators easily access the information they need to make decisions to provide the best instruction possible to each student. The information educators need is often siloed, available too late, or hard to understand. Therefore our work focuses on tackling the behind the scenes problems that prevent data from making its way to teachers in an useful and actionable way. We invest in implementation of data interoperability polices and solutions, such as the Ed-Fi toolkit, that can remove barriers to bring educators in schools and classrooms the information they need to help each student learn. DDE team's main focus is in data interoperability and Ed-Fi implementation.
