As the Associate Director on the Humanities Team at Rocketship Education, Ina Seok managed a variety of projects ranging from leading the design of foundational skills program to investing in a thematic unit initiative. She continued her passion in literacy education and moved to Brooklyn to work for a charter network, Explore Schools, as Senior Director of Literacy Curriculum and Instruction. For the past four years, she set the vision for literacy instruction across multiple schools in a network role. Through this experience, she learned many valuable lessons in how to positively influence educators and elevate humanities instruction for all students.
She first began her career in education as a founding first grade teacher at Rocketship Mosaic Elementary School in San Jose, CA. After her experiences in the classroom, she went to Teachers College at Columbia University to receive an Ed.M. in School Leadership and an M.A. in Economics and Education. Joining Equitas, she is most excited about partnering with families to provide high-quality education for students and coming back to where she grew up as a first generation immigrant! Please join me in welcoming her the Equitas family!
