Elizabeth John: PowerMyLearning Executive Director


My Native Admission Statement: At PowerMyLearning, we believe that the most important adults in shaping a student’s education are their teachers and family members. Through our work, we hope to empower these adults to meet the individual needs of each child. We can do this in a number of ways, including coaching teachers and parent coordinators, facilitating bilingual family workshops at schools, and leveraging our online platform, PowerMyLearning Connect.

How did you get into the industry?:

I started teaching math after I graduated college through the New York City Teaching Fellows program. I knew I wanted to be in education since high school, but I didn’t realize that there were so many ways to get involved outside of teaching. I started at my first nonprofit in 2007 managing educational programs, and have been in the industry ever since. What brought me to PowerMyLearning was their holistic approach to improving education by strengthening the relationships between students, teachers and families.
