TEP Board of Trustees

We would like to thank David Coleman, TEP’s first Board of Trustees Chair, for his dedicated service to the students, staff, and families of TEP and the Washington Heights community. David served as TEP’s Board Chair since May of 2008, holding a key role as a founding member of the School. After 13 incredible years, David has resigned from his position as Chair and will step down from the Board. We are fortunate to have partnered with such a passionate advocate for educational equity. We are inspired by David’s example and will continue to uphold his legacy here at TEP.

We would also like to extend appreciation to Sean Juan, TEP’s newly elected Board Chair. Sean has served as TEP’s Board Secretary since November of 2015 and has supported TEP’s vision with generosity and commitment. We are looking forward to our continued partnership with Sean as he steps into this new leadership role.
