STAMFORD, CT — September 25, 2018— For more than twenty years, The Stamford Public Education Foundation (SPEF) has been working side-by-side with the public school system by providing programs and resources that elevate student, educator, and parent success by bridging the gap between needs in the Stamford Public Schools and resources in our community. As the new academic year starts full-force, SPEF is excited to announce the onboarding of a new Director of Programming, Lindsay Wyman. With over 13 years as an educator at the elementary level, Lindsay has both the experience and organizational skillset that will allow her to transition into her new role overseeing SPEF’s educational programming, which focuses on the areas of College and Career Readiness, Enrichment, Family and Kindergarten Readiness and serves students in grades 3 through 12. She will also manage SPEF’s programs team. Along with the programs team at SPEF, Lindsay is excited to work alongside the leaders in Stamford Public Schools to deliver the best educational programming possible for Stamford’s youth. Lindsay previously worked at Eagle Hill School in Greenwich for 9 years, where she held positions as a literacy teacher to children with special needs, and served as both a Department Head for the Literature Department and a Lower School Advisor. She then moved to King School, where she developed and oversaw the implementation of curriculum for grades K-5 as the Director of Teaching and Learning. Her most recent role was as a literacy consultant on a national level, working in public and private schools nationwide to advise and revamp their literacy programs. Lindsay holds an undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Virginia, and a master’s degree in Childhood & Special Education from Manhattanville College.
