Pilar Ramos

Pilar Ramos started her educational career with New York City Public Schools nearly two decades ago as a middle school humanities teacher in schools in Brooklyn and the Bronx. After ten years of teaching literacy, she moved to the central office where she was a literacy coach, director of professional development, and eventually a director with the Middle School Quality Initiative, a DOE program working with over 100 middle schools across NYC to improve literacy outcomes for students in grades 6-8. Pilar is currently the co-principal of a recently merged Pre-K- 8th-grade school in Bed-Stuy Brooklyn, the first in NYC with an explicit focus on integration. She is working hard to support her students, families, and staff toward building an antiracist school where every student feels a sense of belonging and their voices and experiences are heard and valued.
