Describe what you do in one sentence.
I work with our writers and content advisors to develop high quality, original curriculum for Elevate K-12!
What excites you most about working at Elevate K-12?
Every day presents new challenges and opportunities to problem solve. I love collaborating with my colleagues to find creative solutions that make a positive impact on students across the country. I see so much potential in Elevate and I am very excited to see how we grow and expand in the future.
What’s a “normal” day like for you at Elevate K-12?
There really is no “normal” day at Elevate, but that is what makes it so exciting to work there! I am always collaborating with content advisors and the operations team to make sure our curriculum is engaging and accessible for all learners.
What do you enjoy most about our culture?
I love the fast pace environment and how dedicated everyone at Elevate is to making a difference in education. Everyone at Elevate is so welcoming and we are always doing fun activities to learn more about each other and stay connected. It really feels like one big family!
Elevate K-12’s mission is to bring high-quality instruction to all students, no matter their zip code. What do you like most about impacting students in this way?
As a prior teacher, I feel that working at Elevate allows me to reach way beyond what I was capable of in the classroom. I understand the struggles students and teachers face and I love that I can use my prior knowledge to help make a difference in their lives. There are so many opportunities for Elevate to grow and make a difference in education, we have only reached the tip of the iceberg.
Describe your best moment at Elevate K-12. Be specific!
There are so many to choose from! My favorite moments at Elevate are when I am able to tap into a classroom and see learning live! It is a really special moment to see all the pieces we have been working so hard on, come together as one great learning experience. Seeing students engaged and enjoying our lessons makes me want to continue to better our curriculum and make sure students are getting the best education possible.
Tell us a little more about who you are–what do you like to do?
My favorite things to do are to cook, bake, exercise, and enjoy nature! I love to travel and explore new places. I went to Lake Tahoe in California this August and absolutely loved hiking, kayaking, and swimming the whole week. I cannot wait until we can travel outside the country again! I have a 1-year-old soft coated wheaten terrier named Reidy. If I did not work in education, I would open a bakery!
Thanks, Laura F.
