Baltimore City, Term 2023 - 2027
Nick Greer grew up in rural southeastern Pennsylvania and has over twenty years experience in Maryland education with a deep passion for equitable systemic reform. He currently consults with education and non-profit leaders on initiatives related to strategic planning, organizational-, and talent-development.
Most recently, he was the Executive Vice President of Interconnection at Thread in Baltimore City. There he led the team that created, deployed, and evaluated the learning products that encouraged the development of interwoven and lasting relationships across lines of difference between adult volunteers and young people. His work was defined by his belief that everyone deserves authentic access to social capital; but that this right has been systematically and disproportionately stripped away from individuals who are marginalized.
Prior to joining Thread in 2015, Nick worked at Baltimore City Public Schools as the Director of Science, Special Assistant to the Chief of Staff, and Science Teacher Coach. Nick also spent eight years teaching high school biology. In 2009, he was humbled to be named the Baltimore City Teacher of the Year and a finalist for MD State Teacher of the Year. In 2010 he was also honored to be selected as a Teaching Ambassador Fellow at the United States Department of Education, where he worked in the Office of the Secretary during the Obama Administration.
He holds a BS in Biological Sciences and an MAT from the University of Pittsburgh, and a School Leadership Administration certificate from Loyola University in Maryland. Nick lives in Baltimore where he also volunteers with the Baltimore Community Mediation Center and spends as much time as he can with his eight year old daughter.
