Emily Dobell

Managing Director of Schools

This spring, Emily is honored to transition into the role of Managing Director of Schools at KIPP Massachusetts. Emily began teaching in 2006 and taught middle school special education and math for six years before joining KIPP MA as a founding learning specialist at KIPP Academy Boston in 2012. She was then fortunate to enroll in the Fisher Fellowship after which she became the founding principal of KIPP Academy Boston Elementary in 2014. In 2018, Emily transitioned from elementary to high school as the successor principal of KIPP Academy Lynn Collegiate. She is eager to apply her experience as a teacher and a principal in her new role, inspired and excited to learn from the new challenges ahead.

Emily lives in Lynn, MA with her husband (Josh), her daughter (Audrey), and her dog (Mac). When Emily is not working with her incredible KIPP MA team, she loves to laugh with her family, cook for her loved ones, and travel.
