Rudolph F. Crew

The Stupski Family Foundation, a private philanthropy located near San Francisco, has hired Rudolph F. Crew to be its director of district reform initiatives. Mr. Crew, 50, a former chancellor of the New York City schools, served most recently as the executive director of the Institute for K- 12 Leadership at the University of Washington. He starts his new job June 1. The Stupski Family Foundation supports public education by giving money to school districts and organizations that are seeking to accomplish large-scale educational reform.

Gayla J. Hudson will become the director of teacher quality for the National Education Association this month. Ms. Hudson, 46, is currently the director of professional development for the Oklahoma Commission for Teacher Preparation. In her new role, she will oversee NEA efforts to support and develop teacher-mentoring programs and teacher-recruitment activities, with an emphasis on improving the quality of teaching in low-performing schools.

The 2.6 million-member NEA, based in Washington, is the nation’s largest teachers’ union.

MichaelJ. Guerra will succeed Leonard DeFiore as the president of the National Catholic Educational Association on July 1, the Washington-based organization announced last month. Mr. Guerra has served as the executive director of the NCEA’s secondary schools department for the past 19 years. Mr. DeFiore, who announced last year that he was resigning, will become a resident scholar at Catholic University of America in Washington. The NCEA president serves as the organization’s chief executive officer.

The NCEA represents more than 200,000 educators from Roman Catholic schools.
