Director, Strategy Delivery Unit
Office of the Superintendent, School District of Philadelphia
Sophie is a native Philadelphian, loves this city with all her heart, and views public education as the most important challenge -- and opportunity -- facing us. She practiced law, primarily as a legal aid lawyer in Boston and Philadelphia, for eight years and spent five years doing policy and legislative work for then-City Councilman Bill Green before joining the team at the School District in 2012. She has taught 8th graders and law students -- suffice it to say, the former is much more challenging.
