LeeAnne McNulty, Ed.D. brings 28 years of educational experience, vision, school reform, grant-writing, leadership and social justice into the central coast of California. In 1996, as an elementary school teacher, wrote her first grants to provide much needed supplies and technology into the Jefferson School District in Daly City, California. Through the Bay Area School Reform Collaborative grant, LeeAnne lead a districtwide school reform project in partnership with San Francisco State University. She then began testing and promoting educational innovations for the low-income, underrepresented student populations in the Bay Area. The Career Technical Education (CTE) transformation throughout the educational system placed Dr. McNulty on many fronts. Beginning in 2007, she began leading a regional CTE project. After writing multi-million dollar grants to fund the CTE reform for the Santa Maria Joint Union High School District, she led the path to connecting industry partners to educational programs. Soon after, she became the K-12 Joint Special Populations Advisor for this region. LeeAnne’s educational leadership and grant writing helped move the needle on the educational values of relevance, employment needs, and utilizing education systems to break the cycle of poverty for thousands. Currently, Dr. McNulty is the Director of Institutional Grants at Allan Hancock College, extending her reach to serve even more students in a diverse array of interventions and reform. Dr. McNulty’s legacy is leaving educational institutions and communities strengthened, empowered, and positively transformed. This is the pattern she will continue to strive to achieve in her every endeavor.
