HOW THE DAY WORKS
OUR 2016 SPONSORS
KEYNOTE SPEAKER NIGEL PUGH
Nigel graduated from the University of London, Goldsmiths College with a Post Graduate Certificate of Education in Theater-in-Education, from Hunter College, CUNY,
with a Master of Arts, and from the Principals’ Institute, Bank Street College of Education, with a Master of Education.
His early teaching was influenced by the works of Paulo Freire while he was facilitating a rural literacy program in India.
He taught Theater and English for the Inner London Education Authority for 11 years and for the New York City Department of Education for a further 10 years before becoming an assistant principal, principal and deputy cluster leader. In 2003 he was founding principal the Queens High School of Teaching, an inclusive school with a robust D75 partnership. During his time at the central office he helped to design and support other new or re-design schools in New York City.
He has mentored many future school leaders through the New York City Leadership Academy.
In 2012, feeling less connected to the day to day work in schools, he returned to the principalship and took over a school that required a strong instructional leader. He is now in his third year as principal of Richard R Green High School of Teaching and says, “Returning to a school rejuvenated me and gave me a new lease on life. Schools are where the work is.” His career has been devoted to re-thinking education and trying to design or re-design schools that provide more creative, inclusive and individual opportunities for students.
