Matt Gould Vice President of Finance, Operations, and Data

Born and raised in suburban New York City, Matt had access to an excellent education. However, while in college and living in West Philadelphia, he tutored at inner-city schools and observed the vast difference in the quality of their students' education relative to what he experienced growing up. Through his time in these schools, Matt realized that not all students had access the opportunities they deserved. As a result, he has spent his career working to bridge the significant achievement gap that exists along racial and socioeconomic lines.

Prior to joining Educators for Excellence, Matt managed corporate real estate, facilities, procurement functions, and organizational strategy in the non-profit sector supporting over 70 locations in 51 regions across the U.S. Matt is excited to continue his efforts to promote educational equity and teacher empowerment by joining E4E as its head of finance, operations, and data.

"I have a deep conviction that teacher leadership is essential to ensuring that all students, regardless of their zip code, have access to an excellent education."
