Tracy Fray-Oliver is Vice President of the Bank Street Education Center. Tracy began her career in education after graduating from John Jay College of Criminal Justice as a middle school math teacher. After earning her master’s degree in Mathematics Education from Brooklyn College, she transitioned into the role of a math coach and instructional specialist.
Inspired by her work at the school level, Tracy continued her commitment to curriculum and instruction at New York City Department of Education district office where she served in a variety of roles: first working as the Director of Mathematics Curriculum and the Common Core Fellows Program to support the city’s transition to the Common Core Standards — working with teachers, principals, and leading experts to integrate these new standards into instructional resources and guidance for citywide adoption — and then as the Senior Director of STEM, playing a major role in defining the city’s approach to STEM instruction.
Presently, Tracy leads the programmatic and implementation work for the organization and the New York Network Hub. Tracy has also led multiple project teams with organizations that impact children and educators across the country, from Newark to New Orleans, from downtown Manhattan to mile-high Denver.
