Chief Learning Officer
Leading Educators was established to advance the leadership opportunities and skills of our teacher leaders across the United States. Under Chong-Hao's leadership, Leading Educators trained over 500 teacher leaders last year in Washington D.C., New Orleans, Houston, Kansas City, Denver, and Memphis with the program soon to expand to Chicago and New York. Chong-Hao has presented to the Gates Foundation, American Federation of Teachers, and the Aspen Institute and is the lead author of an Aspen Institute White Paper entitled "Leading From the Front of the Classroom." Before his time at Leading Educators, Chong-hao was the founding principal at KIPP Sharpstown in Houston, one of the highest performing schools in the city and one of the few fine arts schools dedicated to serving lower income students. He holds a B.A. from Yale University and a M.Ed. from National Louis University.
