Tre Tennyson - HGSE

Tre is pursuing Masters of Education Policy and Management at the Graduate School of Education. Before coming to Harvard, from 2011 to 2013 he worked as a fifth grade teacher with Teach For America in Atlanta, Georgia. Following his time in Atlanta, for four years he worked as the director of an American school in Shenzhen, China, and later as a member of the school's corporate team, overseeing the company's expansion and franchise operation throughout the country. Upon his return to the U.S. in 2017, he worked as an administrator at schools in his hometown of Richmond, Virginia.

Tre is deeply committed to amplifying the power of student voices, with emphasis on team work, equity, and inclusion. This year, his priorities are to establish a robust external advocacy apparatus, building on an extensive network of advocates across schools, and maintaining an ongoing dialogue with the student body about issues most important to their success.
