The New Guy

After a brief hiatus, In Context is back with the addition of Tim Lavallee as vice president of policy and research at WakeEd.


Tim was a teacher in Wake County for the past 10 years, during which six of those years were at the elementary level in WCPSS. Prior to teaching, Tim had a successful career in print journalism in the Boston area, where he grew up.

In addition to In Context, Tim will work as a bridge between WCPSS and the business community to help provide detailed information about public schools in Wake and the important local and national issues that have an impact on our educators and students.

When he’s not at WakeEd, Tim spends his time with his wife, two children, and two dogs trying to soak up every minute of his kids’ lives – before the kids become teenagers and don’t want to hang out with him anymore.
