Daniel Szekely
Director of Finance


Daniel Szekely is the director of finance at Bellwether on the Core Operations team. 

Prior to joining the organization, he was the director of finance at Green Dot Public Schools California, a large Los Angeles-based charter management organization. There, he advised district leadership on financial strategy, oversaw the development and implementation of the organization-wide budget, and managed a team of district operations coaches. He also has experience in various school-based operational leadership roles within charter schools throughout the New York City metro area. Daniel began his career as a 2015 Teach For America corps member, where he taught middle school science in Providence, Rhode Island. 

Daniel holds an MBA from the University of Southern California and a bachelor’s degree in biology from Allegheny College, where he graduated magna cum laude. He currently lives in Los Angeles.

Why I do this work:

I experienced both extremes of our stratified education system — first, as the recipient of a high-quality independent school education that provided me with boundless opportunities, and later as a public teacher in an under-resourced school within a large urban district. I believe that access to a quality education should be a right and not a privilege dictated by race or socioeconomic status, and I work to support the educators who are building a stronger and more equitable system for all students.
