Gabe Grantham

Executive Associate

Gabe joined Texas 2036 in 2021 after spending three years with Teach for America, teaching high school science in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In addition to his role as a classroom teacher, Gabe served as the test coordinator, social media manager, and member of the Superintendent’s Teacher Cabinet.

While in the classroom, Gabe saw first-hand how vital high-quality education is as well as how policy decisions can have negative and unintended consequences for the students and families that he served. His experience in the classroom fanned his passion for education policy and desire to see data-driven, systemic change that works for all people.

Gabe attended the University of Texas where he received his B.B.A. in Finance in 2018. While at UT, Gabe worked for Rep. Cindy Burkett during the 85th Legislative session and fell in love with the Texas Legislature. In his free time, he can be found playing tennis, cheering on the Longhorns, incessantly checking Twitter, or seeking out a new brewery.
