Education

William Eger, Class of 2012

WEI'm currently working for Boston Public Schools as a Strategic Projects Manager in our Finance Office where I work on our long term financial planning -- that is, how do we both identify areas in which to spend less to put towards areas where we think we should spend more (I'm also currently a Broad Resident). Of late, that has included supporting the drafting of our long term financial plan and increase efficiencies in transportation (through initiatives like our transportation challenge). Before joining BPS, I worked for Parthenon in their education practice where I worked on a number of projects for school districts (including a memorable 10 month project for Detroit Public Schools), foundations, non-profits, state departments of education, and several for-profit education organizations. Prior to Parthenon, I was teaching high school math at a charter school in Philadelphia (with Teach for America). I began my career after high school (i.e. before college) with City Year Boston and I'm happy to be back in Boston!
