Former Senior Advisor, Results for America, Educator
Snowmass Village, CO

Laurie WingateBeginning with a decade of classroom teaching — first in Oakland, California with Teach for America, and then in Washington DC, Laurie Wingate’s career has focused on advancing educational outcomes for students in urban environments. Most recently, she served as a Senior Advisor to Results for America (RFA) where she helped city governments and community-based collective impact organizations make better use of education data to inform policies in housing, transportation and workforce training.

Laurie was previously Executive Director of Raise DC, the District of Columbia’s cradle-to-career collective impact partnership. Working closely with nonprofit, governmental, philanthropic and private sector partners, Raise DC uses education-related data to suggest a methodology for driving improved outcomes for children.

She was a founding teacher at the Brent Museum Magnet School, a DC public school that operated in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution, and also helped create the Inspired Teaching Charter School. Laurie served on the boards of DC Vote and Georgetown Day School as well as on DC’s Workforce Investment Council. She currently serves on the board of Martha’s Table in Washington, D.C.. Earlier in her career she taught American government for two years in Russia at Moscow State University.

She graduated from Dartmouth College and received her Master’s in Education/ teaching credential through the University of California, Berkeley.

Laurie lives in Snowmass Village, Colorado with her husband Mark. Between them, they have six children, all of whom are waiting with amusement to see how their parents fare re-entering the world of college.
