We are excited to announce that Kim Kassnove has joined our team as Chief Talent Officer, leading our new Talent department.
Kim began her career in education as a member of the New York City Teaching Fellows. After spending time in the classroom as a middle school language arts and theater teacher, she worked for non-profit Roads to Success. While there, she supported program implementation and design and led the training and support of individuals facilitating the curriculum in classrooms in New York City, West Virginia, and New York. Roads to Success evolved to become an after school program provider, and Kim then became Program Director. She later developed the organization’s first Workforce Development Initiative wherein the Roads to Success youth development workers were trained in 21st century skill development.
Prior to joining Hebrew Public, Kim worked for New Classrooms as the Director of Growth and Expansion. In this role, she supported schools and districts to transform their classrooms into personalized learning environments. Kim also worked for Newark Public Schools as the Executive Director of Staffing and Recruitment and led that team from 2013-2016.
“I am thrilled to be leading the talent department and to ensure that Hebrew Public’s mission is supported by a robust, inclusive and inspiring talent practice, Kim said. “I look forward to supporting the network to find, grow and retain teachers and leaders with diverse backgrounds who agree that school should be immersive, joyful and transformative.”
Kim has a master’s degree in education from Pace University and a bachelor’s degree in theater from Tufts University. She lives in New Jersey with her husband, two kids and their cat.
