Tiffany S. Ward


Master of Arts in Teaching, University of Pittsburgh

Educator, Instructional Coach, Project Coordinator

Tiffany began The Pittsburgh Village Project in April 2020 in response to the COVID-19 school closures. As an educator for 10 years and advocate for justice through education, she designed the project to create resources that promote joy and creativity to help combat opportunity gaps. Inspiration for the project sparked from her mother, who began a similar project providing art supplies to families of preschool students during the pandemic.

Tiffany has teaching and/or instructional coaching experience in early childhood centers, elementary and middle schools. She has facilitated professional development and panel discussions on project-based learning and has written a summer writing curriculum for 6th-12th grade students. She has volunteered as a Khan Academy Ambassador, participated in the Southwest PA Maker Learning Cohort and currently serves on the Healthy Schools Advisory Board.
