As Director of Program, Andrew Plemmons Pratt builds experiences for education leaders to learn equity-centered design tools and apply them to create transformative schools and social ventures. Since joining CityBridge in 2015, he has supported leaders and teacher teams across the District and charter sectors on school redesign, coached school designers on new start charter applications, and led multiple fellowships focused on innovation, design thinking, and race equity. His work is grounded in the belief that schools can disrupt and dismantle systems of oppression.
Formerly, Andrew worked in school partnerships at New Classrooms; taught 7th-grade English as a Teach For America corps member in Prince George’s County, Maryland; and edited a magazine about science policy at the Center for American Progress. He holds a B.A. in English and American Studies and an M.A. in English, both from the University of Virginia. He and his wife are public school parents to two kids and live on Capitol Hill.
