BIOGRAPHY

"I am committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to unleash their full potential each day."
Dr. Margaret Crespo

Dr. Margaret Crespo, a dedicated advocate for access and opportunity in education, brings over 25 years of leadership and educational experience to her role. Currently serving as the Superintendent in Residence at ILO Group, a women-owned education strategy and policy firm, she actively engages in educational leadership training. Dr. Crespo collaborates closely with some of the most accomplished female superintendents and leaders in the United States.

Prior to her role at ILO Group, Dr. Crespo made history as the first woman to hold the position of Superintendent at Laramie County School District #1 from 2021 to 2023. During her tenure, she oversaw Wyoming's largest school district and championed a community-focused approach. Dr. Crespo brought together LCSD1 employees, local business owners, and the community to collaboratively shape a promising future for the youth of Cheyenne.

Before LCSD1, Dr. Crespo served as the Area Superintendent for the Southwest Network in the Boulder Valley School District, located in Boulder, CO. Her executive-level positions in the Thompson School District in Loveland, Colorado, included chief academic officer, chief operations, and other executive director roles. Dr. Crespo has a rich background, having been a principal, assistant principal, counselor, and teacher at the secondary level.

Beyond her contributions to education, Dr. Crespo actively serves on the boards of multiple impactful organizations, focusing on making a meaningful difference in the lives of youth and families in her community.

Margaret earned her doctorate at Arizona State University, and her master's and bachelor's degrees at Montclair State University, New Jersey. As a first-generation American, she genuinely acknowledges the challenges her Cuban-born parents faced in their pursuit of a better life.
