Pamela M. Low (she/her) is a K-12 Policy Analyst at the Education Trust—West (ETW), where she works to improve education equity, access, and outcomes through policy. Part of the TK-16 Education Policy team, Pamela brings experience as an art educator, a community partner with California school districts, and a social justice organizer.
As an art educator, Pamela began working with students at her local Parks and Recreation Center, where she learned from and worked with classroom teachers from the San Francisco Bay Area. After graduating from college, she joined the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco, where she developed, executed, and evaluated school and teacher programs. A large part of her role was to support teachers with arts integration in the classroom, social-emotional learning strategies, and California’s Ethnic Studies requirement. Seeking to create a more significant impact, she hopes to continue this important work of educating the whole child through policy at ETW.
From Hayward and Oakland, CA, Pamela is a first and fifth-generation Chinese American. She holds a bachelor’s degree in sociology and gender studies from Santa Clara University and a master’s degree in education (Policy, Organization, and Leadership Studies) from Stanford University. In her free time, she enjoys visiting local museums, parks, and eateries.
