Sam Howe leads a team of consultants who provide pro bono data analytics, consulting, and decision support. Over the past decade, Sam has worked with over 500 state and district leaders to help them chart a course for closing the gap in academic achievement. Using data as his starting point, Sam can help forecast academic needs, as well as plan service delivery for students at all levels of proficiency. His practice area also includes a deep understanding of changing demographic patterns and how that is likely to impact achievement. Sam frequently partners with educational leaders to present data to state and local boards of education.

Sam started his career as a science teacher and computer center director and has taught every grade from K–12, with the majority of his teaching experience at the middle school level. In the late ‘80s, he served as a school board member in suburban Philadelphia. In 2006, he served on the advisory board for the National School Board Association's Next Chapter publication, a primer on Reading Next for school board members.

Sam has a BA degree from Earlham College in Richmond, IN, and has done graduate work in molecular biology, computer science, and communications at Bryn Mawr College and the University of Pennsylvania. He is the author of two books, 12 educational software titles, and approximately 40 professional publications in educational technology.
