Under the administration of Governor-elect Ricardo Rosselló Nevares, Dr. Keleher will be overseeing the management and usage of funds in the Department of Education, and using all available information to assess the actual performance of the education system in Puerto Rico. Dr. Keleher has spent a considerable part of her 20-year professional career managing educational projects, overseeing the use of federal funds, and providing technical assistance to school districts and educational agencies, so they could comply with the requirements established by the US Department of Education.
