Angela K. Doan

New Gig: Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski hired Doan as senior advisor for education with a mandate to reform school-discipline policies and enhance early childhood education. Experience: Before law school, taught fourth grade in her hometown of Salt Lake City under a Title I school improvement grant and grew frustrated by the lack of empowerment accorded to teachers. Lesson Learned: “While teaching, I clearly saw gaps between laws and policies and what was actually happening in classrooms.” Attention Getter: Mayor Biskupski was impressed by Doan’s experience with city schools and education policy (at BC, Doan got dual law and masters-in-education degrees). She looks to Doan to help end “the school-to-prison-pipeline.”
