Learn more about my guest, Jacob Michelman:
Jacob Michelman has been in education for over 17 years. He started as a high school math teacher in New Jersey for five years. He was the youngest candidate accepted into the first cohort of the New York City Leadership Academy under the direction of Bob Knowling and Sandra Stein. He completed his Masters at Fordham University where he became a lifetime member of Phi Kappa Phi for academic achievement. In 2006, Jacob Michelman became one of the youngest principals in New York City where he led a failing school to achieve a Well Developed rating on the Quality Review, from an F to A on the School Report Card, and removed the school from the Persistently Dangerous School List and The Failing School List for the State of New York. He raised over $3 million dollars to improve the quality of the school including a state of the art library and computers for all his students allowing for huge strides to be made in systemically implementing technology throughout his school. After 10 and a half years as a principal, Jacob has recently stepped into the world of educational consultant where he shares his expertise in school leadership and systemic change with schools throughout the tri-state area. He currently works for New Leaders as the Director of Emerging Leaders and Leading Instruction.
