Jill Glassbrook graduated from Indiana University – Bloomington with degrees in English and Gender Studies, and went on to attend Seton Hall University where she received her masters degree in Education – Curriculum Design and Technology. Jill began her career in education as a preschool teacher, but quickly learned that her knack was usually with the older siblings of her students. After joining AmeriCorps to launch a wrap-around and mentoring program for teenagers incarcerated in Indiana’s Juvenile Department of Corrections Facilities, Jill joined Teach for America where she taught in Newark, New Jersey as a self-contained behavior disorders teacher for students in grades 4-6. As her passion for education progressed, she came to Brooklyn as the Director of Special Services and then Dean of Students at Achievement First Bushwick Middle School. After 4 years in Bushwick, Jill joined the PAVE team and launched the Middle School as the founding MS Principal. She is excited to pass the torch this year to Mr. Green as she changes roles and supports all of PAVE in developing a great curriculum.
