Biography

As Deputy Director for Next Generation Learning Challenges (http://nextgenlearning.org), Andy Calkins helps to lead strategy development, organizational management, and program execution across all phases of the initiative.

Prior to joining NGLC in April, 2011, Andy served as Senior Program Officer at the Stupski Foundation, Senior Vice President at the influential education reform group Mass Insight, Executive Director of Recruiting New Teachers, Inc. (the non-profit behind the national "Reach for the Power: Teach" campaign working to build a highly skilled, diverse teacher workforce), and as the editor of Electronic Learning magazine at Scholastic Inc. Andy holds a B.A. from Harvard College and was a Henry Fellow at Cambridge University in the UK. He is the lead author of The Careers in Teaching Handbook and The Turnaround Challenge, Mass Insight's 2007 report on turning around the nation's persistently underperforming schools.
