Purvi started her career in education as a Spanish teacher in Charlotte, NC and Richmond, VA, where she served as a teacher leader to implement data driven and collaborative practices. She is joining Education Elements from District of Columbia Public Schools, where she worked on the Innovation and Design Team to support both the Design Lab and LEAP. On the Design Lab, Purvi provided DCPS school leaders and their teams with the time, space, and resources to develop bold new school models. More specifically, Purvi coached four schools through the redesign process using the principles of human-centered design and equityxdesign. On the district’s teacher professional development program LEAP, which allowed teachers to receive weekly development and support, she offered individualized support to schools, collaborated with subject specialists on content for professional development, and played a key role in the evaluation and redesign of LEAP for SY17-18. For both programs Purvi strategically used design thinking to create experiences and trainings, challenge thinking, and coach leaders through the development of new programming.

Meet Educators Addressing Inequities & Breaking Barriers in Their Schools & Districts

In September of 2020, Education Elements announced the first cohort of the “Systems for Education Equity Development," or SEED, Fellowship. The fellowship is an exclusive, multi-month, cohort experience for educational leaders to redesign a system within their school district that is contributing to creating inequity in the student experience. The inaugural SEED Fellowship cohort is a powerful group of educators made of leaders across 7 states including the District of Columbia, Georgia, Illinois, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Washington. Individually they are amazing, and together and through the SEED experience, the fellows will have an additional set of tools as well as a network of support to address their local, systemic challenges around equity.
