Ann Waterman Roy is VP, Partnerships & Finance at Innovate Public Schools, where she oversees partnerships, finance, planning and impact. She previously led Innovate’s school support programs.

Before coming to Innovate, Ann spent almost two decades in leadership roles across the charter school, district and nonprofit sectors in Boston, MA. Among other roles, Ann was Boston Executive Director of the Achievement Network, a nonprofit that partners with district and charter schools to boost student learning through standards- and data-driven teaching.

Before that, Ann spent nearly four years with Boston Public Schools as Director of Strategic Planning, where she led planning to open and expand autonomous district schools. This included launching in-district charters that successfully restarted some of BPS’s lowest-performing schools.

Prior to BPS, Ann was Executive Director of Excel Academy, a charter public school serving primarily low-income, Latino students that has consistently been one of the top performing public middle schools in Massachusetts.

Ann is an alumna of the Broad Residency, and holds a bachelor’s from Harvard and an MBA from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth.
