Jenne Grant
Leadership Effectiveness Director

Jenne Colasacco Grant joined the Lynch Leadership Academy in July 2013, in the role of Leadership Effectiveness Director. In this role, Jenne coaches Fellows, focusing particularly on supporting them as they lead change initiatives in their schools. Jenne’s work is centered on ensuring principals are able to apply their new knowledge and skills learned in other aspects of the fellowship as they strive to create change and continually improve their schools to raise student achievement.

Before joining the Lynch Leadership Academy, Jenne was a school leader at Academy of the Pacific Rim Charter Public School, in Boston’s Hyde Park neighborhood. She led APR first for three years as the Middle School Principal and then for six years as the High School Principal. Under Jenne’s leadership, APR’s high school consistently demonstrated strong results, including being the highest-scoring school in the state on the 10th grade ELA MCAS in 2009 and in 2012. In the six years of her tenure, APR’s graduates have matriculated to college at a rate of 95%, and have persisted in college at a rate of 85%. Prior to her work at APR, Jenne taught high school science in Providence, RI and in Baltimore City Public Schools, where she was a 1999 Teach For America corps member. Recently, Jenne served as an adjunct professor at Boston University, where she instructed incoming Teach For America corps members in general teaching methods.

Jenne earned a master of science in educational leadership from Simmons College and holds a bachelor of arts in human biology from Brown University.
