Samir Paul is a teacher, problem solver, and organizer committed to expanding economic opportunity and helping sustain and reform public institutions. Samir’s family immigrated to the United States from India as students in the early 1980s, and they ultimately settled in Montgomery County to start a business and to send Samir and his brother to excellent public schools. He attended Wayside Elementary School, Hoover Middle School, and Blair High School before going on to earn his bachelor’s in computer science at Harvard University. He also holds a Master’s degree in teaching from American University.
Since returning home to Montgomery County in 2010, Samir has served on a variety of boards, including the University of Maryland Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, the Harvard Club of Washington, the Montgomery Blair High School PTSA, the Blair Magnet Foundation, and the Montgomery County Young Democrats.
