Get to Know Commissioner Angélica M. Infante-Green

Commissioner Angélica M. Infante-Green

Angélica M. Infante-Green is the Commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education for the State of Rhode Island. In this role, she oversees the activities and staff of the Rhode Island Department of Education (RIDE), working to make the state’s schools the best in the nation. Prior to joining RIDE in April 2019, she served as the Deputy Commissioner of the New York State Education Department’s Office of Instructional Support.

Infante-Green began her career as a bilingual classroom teacher in the South Bronx. Since leaving the classroom, she has served in a variety of roles focused on improving instruction for all students, particularly students who are multi-lingual learners. She held several leadership positions for the New York City School Department before working at the state level, and she was a member of the first cohort of the Chiefs for Change Future Chiefs program.

As a first-generation American, Infante-Green sees her first day as a teacher as a life-changing moment where she realized her personal calling. Having herself learned English in school, and as the parent of a child with special needs, she has fought to replace a “deficit” view with an “enrichment” view for students who need more. Infante-Green earned an M.A. in Education and in School Administration & Supervision from Mercy College. She is married with a son and daughter.
