Paloma Cotton-Herman

School Engagement Manager, EXPLO Elevate

Paloma serves as School Engagement Manager, the primary contact for members to connect about topics relevant to their schools. She meets regularly with school leaders to understand their current challenges as well as unique strengths, and these conversations inform future Elevate offerings. As Elevate aims to create collaborations between schools, Paloma also works to build community among members in order to problem-solve together and swap successes.

At EXPLO, she was previously Director of Teaching and Learning, and helped cultivate a network of educators through their professional development offerings. Prior to moving back east, she spent ten years in the Bay Area at The San Francisco School, a progressive PreK-8th grade school, in a variety of roles, teaching Spanish, working in High School Guidance and serving as the Director of Admission. She received an A.B. in Education Studies from Brown University.
