Paymon Rouhanifard Paymon Rouhanifard (pictured), a veteran strategist in the education field, earned his bachelor's degree in economics and political science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He began his teaching career as a sixth grade teacher at PS 192 in West Harlem with Teach for America from 2003 to 2005. In 2005, he tried dabbling in the private sector, first as an analyst with Goldman Sachs for two years and then in 2007 becoming an associate with AEA Investors LP, a position he held for a little over two year. Then it was back into education for Rouhanifard. He spent nearly a year as chief of staff to the deputy chancellor of the New York City Department of Education, beginning in August 2009. In 2010, he became chief executive officer of the Office of Portfolio Management for the NYC Department of Education. Then in November 2012, Rouhanifard was named chief strategy and innovation officer for the Newark, New Jersey, Public Schools. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christi recently announced that Rouhanifard, at age 32, will take over as superintendent of the Camden, New Jersey, school system.
Rouhanifard will also work with the local Regional Achievement Center, one of seven established last year when New Jersey received a waiver from the federal No Child Left Behind law.
