Betty Dao serves as the Director of the inaugural RIDES Leadership Fellowship. As a Senior Project Manager with SchoolWorks, an education consulting organization, she has supported hundreds of educational institutions including schools, districts, state departments of education, and foundations towards transformative change and improvement.
There isn’t a single approach for every school or organization, and by focusing on building their capacity to celebrate their strengths and solve their own challenges is Betty’s greatest passion.
Betty’s educational background includes a master’s degree from Harvard’s School Leadership program, a master’s degree from Johns Hopkins in Teaching and Learning, and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Maryland, College Park in Psychology. She is also a proud Teach for America alumna (Baltimore City).
