David Badillo is the Senior Director of Business Development for PBLWorks. David began his professional career as a New York City public school teacher, serving middle school students in Queens, NY. He holds a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education from St. John’s University.
David was inspired by his mother, an early childhood educator, to become a teacher. After completing his third year of teaching, he transitioned from the classroom to the education business sector. David committed to an equity-centered approach to K-12 consultative sales leadership within both the private and non-profit sectors.
For the past 10 years, David has served as Director of School Partnerships with some of the most respected national education non-profits in the country, such as Playworks and Eye to Eye National. In these roles, he specialized in expanding impactful programming to schools and districts across the country. He sees his ability to communicate vision and value to school leaders within the K-12 environment as his superpower. David knows that with every school partnership secured, more students will be receiving the help and support they need, further closing the equity gaps that exist in our country's education system.
In his free time, David enjoys spending time with his wife and four children. Along with serving his family, David can also be found behind the pulpit on the weekends, serving as a volunteer lead pastor for the church he and his wife co-founded.
