NFTE New York Metro Staff
Terry Bowman, Executive Director
Terry joins us from the New York City Department of Education where he has held several posts across the last seven years. Most recently, he oversaw the development and implementation of policies impacting teacher effectiveness, teacher and principal compensation and various other critical labor and human capital issues. In this capacity Terry partnered with the DOE Office of Accountability to use data in establishing a framework to evaluate and reward teachers and principals based upon student academic progress. Prior to that Terry oversaw Chancellor Joel Klein’s Strategic Response Group, which served on the front lines of communications efforts between the chancellor’s office and students, parents, district staff and public officials, and which reported on key trends to the DOE leadership team. In this role, he worked closely with the Office of Community and Public Affairs and created the Translation and Interpretation Unit that leads district outreach to the 40% of city school parents whose first language is not English.
A product of North Carolina, Terry earned his BA in English and Political Science from the University of North Carolina (Chapel Hill) and his Master of Divinity at Harvard University.
