Jamie Batschke is our new Executive Director here at School of Economics. She has dedicated her 30-year career to investing in the lives of children and families through her non-profit work and Federal service. This pursuit has led her to the management of programs that address diverse challenges, such as substance abuse, childhood health and wellness, and support for low-income children and families. Jamie has worked with school districts nationwide, and is passionate about empowering children through education and real-world learning to ensure they are equipped to overcome life’s challenges. She couldn’t be more excited to bring her passion and commitment to the children of SOE. In her free time, Jamie enjoys hiking, baking and teaching yoga.
