Biography

Anurupa Ganguly serves as the Director of Mathematics and Engineering at Success Academy Charter Schools. Her team is currently building a new-age 4-year Math, Engineering and Computer Science curriculum. As an engineer turned educator, she is particularly committed to the transformation of the K-12 experience to one that equips historically underserved students and their teachers with the beliefs, skills and resolve to support students’ success in post-secondary fields within STEM, which continue to suffer the lack of diverse participation even today.

She began her teaching career in the Boston Public Schools (BPS) as a Physics and Mathematics teacher where she was inspired to re-envision collaborative learning for urban mathematics teachers. After spending two years in Mumbai, India, recruiting high quality teachers, developing teacher PL to modernize student experiences, and integrating the principles of the CCSS-Mathematics into the Indian context of curriculum and instruction, Anurupa returned to the Boston Public Schools to head the Secondary Mathematics office, and later served as the Senior Director of Teaching and Learning at the NYC DOE. She now lives in Brooklyn, NYC. She holds a BS and M.Eng in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT, and EdM in Curriculum and Teaching from Boston University.
