President, The New Teacher Project
As president of The New Teacher Project (TNTP), a national non-profit organization that partners with school districts and states to improve teacher quality in low-performing schools, Timothy Daly manages the organization’s efforts to engage the wider educational community in teacher quality reforms, including recruitment, selection, training, and staffing rules. Immediately prior to his appointment as President in 2007, Tim served as Vice President for Policy and Research, managing The New Teacher Project’s efforts to ensure that teacher hiring and staffing processes support student achievement. Tim was responsible for launching this business line in 2006 and presided over its rapid growth. He has been with TNTP since 2001 and previously served as TNTP’s managing partner for multiple contracts including the NYC Teaching Fellows program (NYCTF), the largest of The New Teacher Project’s alternate route to certification programs. In the past four years, NYCTF has attracted over 70,000 applications from individuals interested in teaching; today, there are nearly 8,600 Teaching Fellows active in more than 1,100 public schools across New York City. Tim began his career in education as a Teach For America corps member at Northeast Middle School in Baltimore, MD. He holds a BA in American Studies from Northwestern University and a MA in Teaching from Johns Hopkins University.
