The Yale School of Management Team
The Yale Education Leadership Conference is entirely student run. In addition to the leaders below, we have a team of volunteers that supports with panel organization and conference execution.
Kevin is originally from LA and misses the warm weather. Prior to business school, he worked in the education sector; first as a middle school teacher and then as a strategic planner for Green Dot Public Schools.
Prior to Yale, Amy has held a variety of roles in growing and expanding high-performing charter schools across the country. After an initial stint as a management consultant with Deloitte’s Strategy & Operations practice, Amy found her passion for education. She has worked with the Charter School Growth Fund to invest in the expansion of high-performing schools across the Western US and spearheaded growth & planning as the Chief of Staff for Rocky Mountain Prep, a network of elementary schools in the Denver metro area. Amy graduated with a degree in Economics and Mathematical Methods in Social Sciences from Northwestern University, and she is a native of Cincinnati, Ohio.
Prannoy started his career in the classroom, teaching middle school math in Baltimore and receiving an M.S. in Education from Johns Hopkins University, both through Teach for America. He subsequently transitioned to Deloitte Consulting to gain a private sector perspective on how to tackle complex institutional problems, remaining close to K-12 space through pro-bono projects in education. Prior to starting an MBA at Yale, he served as an Education Pioneer at Washington Leadership Academy, where he focused on implementing VR/AR initiatives and strategic projects for scaling school operations. Most recently, he worked in Product Management roles at Facebook and Lexi (ed-tech startup). Prannoy is passionate about education, particularly regarding how technology can be used as a tool to further student learning.
Anna is a first-year MBA candidate at the Yale School of Management. Prior to SOM, Anna spent nine years in public K-12 education as a teacher, district administrator, public policy fellow, and strategy consultant. Anna started her career as a 2009 Teach for America corps member in the Greater New Orleans region where she served as a special education teacher in alternative, remedial, and general education settings. After her corps commitment, Anna served as a founding teacher at a Turnaround charter school in New Orleans East, before moving into a district leadership role where she helped students, teachers, school leaders, and community members transition to new academic standards and assessments. In 2015, Anna was selected as a Leadership for Educational Equity Public Policy Fellow which allowed her to apply her classroom experience to shape policy and practice at the Louisiana Department of Education. In 2016, Anna (begrudgingly) moved away from her adopted home of New Orleans to join her partner in New Haven. There, she served as an independent education consultant helping schools, districts, and education startups to develop strategic plans and conduct program evaluations. Anna holds a B.A. from Barnard College in Urban Studies and Political Science and a post-baccalaureate certificate in Government Analytics from Johns Hopkins University.
Arielle was a founding teacher at a public middle school in the Bronx. She helped to develop and execute school strategy to scale the organization to its full operational capacity, which increased enrollment by over 200% in three years. During her five years as a model science teacher for the DOE, Arielle also managed new teacher development and consulted with other schools across the district to create, implement, and analyze data driven school improvement interventions.
Arielle originally entered the classroom through Teach for America after graduating from Brown University, where she wrote her neuroscience thesis on Contemplative Education. Arielle also holds a master’s degree in education for teaching secondary science. She is now in her first year at Yale SOM.

An Ohio native, Adam graduated from Harvard College in 2013 with a degree in Government and was a member of the varsity wrestling team.
