Sharmin Khan

Senior Operations Manager


What I Work On: I am the Senior Operations Manager at Student Achievement Partners. I ensure staff has the necessary tools and resources to drive student achievement and operational excellence. I am responsible for the day-to-day virtual operations, including providing service with a human-centered approach and managing IT stakeholder relationships and operating systems to ensure organization-wide goals are met. I also manage the Contract Revenue process including reporting and supporting the SAP team to price contract opportunities. As a team member of Student Achievement Partners, I contribute toward our goal of becoming an anti-racist and multicultural organization.

Why I Work Here: My family came to the U.S when I was only 6 years old, leaving the comfort of their home, for a new life in America hoping for a bright future. I am the first person in my family to receive a college education and I know firsthand the opportunities that having a proper education brings. I pride myself on being part of an organization whose focus is to design actions that model just, equitable literacy and mathematics instruction at grade level for Black students and students who are English Learners. I was an EL student and I am grateful to be a part of an organization that supports kids who face barriers in our system. Another reason I love working here is because of my supportive colleagues who’ve made the past 4 years an amazing experience. 

My Education and Experience: I received a Bachelor's of Health Science at CUNY Hunter College and have over 7 years of Operational management experience. My passion to help students stem from my experience being an EL student where I got to see firsthand the challenges students face going through the educational system.

More About Me: I lived most of my adult life in New York among the hustle and bustle and only recently realized the love I have for nature. I am a mother of two beautiful daughters who make everyday interesting to say the least and I love them unconditionally. Some other things I love are cooking, photography, and hiking.
