Emily White is ready to be an excellent leader of an excellent charter school in Atlanta, GA.
Emily was the Founding Assistant Principal of KIPP Nashville Collegiate High School, where she designed and led instruction and curriculum, oversaw professional development, and provided data-based coaching and actionable feedback to teachers. Prior to joining KIPP, Emily was a Manager – and then Director – of Teacher Leadership Development with Teach For America. As Director, Emily modeled best-practices with managers in classroom observations and teacher coaching conversations, maintained key district and community relationships, and coached Corps members to diagnose needs based on student progress, resulting in a cohort of first-year English teachers “significantly exceeding growth” on Common Core-aligned state assessments.
Emily began her career in education as a Teach For America Corps member teaching high school English in Charlotte, NC. Emily led her class to a 92% overall pass rate on the state writing assessment, positioning her school as the third-highest achieving high school (of 21 high schools) in the district.
Emily received a B.A. in English and Communications from Wake Forest University.
