David Adams: CEO of The Urban Assembly. This is episode 535 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.

David Adams, is the Chief Executive Officer of The Urban Assembly.

He started with the UA in 2014 as the Director of Social-Emotional Learning, where he created the Resilient Scholars Program (RSP), a unique approach to integrating SEL into curriculum and classroom practices across the UA network. RSP has grown into a national program, serving schools and districts in Los Angeles, Houston, Syracuse, and other cities.

As the Senior Director of Strategy, David led the expansion of the organization into a model provider of school support, with an emphasis on innovation and equity in public education.

In 2021, David received the Champion of Equity Award from the American Consortium for Equity in Education. David sits on the board of CASEL and is an author of The Educator’s Practical Guide to Emotional Intelligence, and a co-author of the textbook, Challenges to Integrating Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Programs in Organizations. He is a Civil Affairs Officer in the Army Reserve and holds an M.Ed in Educational Psychology from Fordham University.

Urban Assembly is a nonprofit that not only supports its own public schools (23 in NYC), but also hundreds of schools across the country and locally. The Urban Assembly has been at the forefront of innovation in public education for 25 years to solve challenges for teachers and administrators who devote themselves to elevating our students.

Listen as we talk about how the nonprofit he runs nurtures and supports leadership in schools in underrepresented/underserved communities, specifically its career themed education programs which includes training for careers as disparate as finance, aquaculture, manufacturing and the law.  Real-world exposure that can ease their way into the workplace or into college.
