Our work in
Greater Los Angeles
PowerMyLearning in Greater Los Angeles has partnered with more than 200 schools and 38 library branches. We have served more than 185,000 students, parents, and teachers since 2008. PowerMyLearning has demonstrated significant impact on student achievement, teacher instructional practices, and parental confidence.
"Thanks to PowerMyLearning, I’ve been able to further differentiate my instruction this year far more than what I’ve been able to provide in the past. With the support of PowerMyLearning, I was able to differentiate my instruction by using real-time data from assessments to dynamically structure my student groups."
PowerMyLearning partners with school leaders, teachers, students, and families at high need, under- served public schools and districts throughout the Greater Los Angeles Area. At our partner schools, more than 75% of students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch, and 50% of students are English Learners.
We are an equity-centered professional learning organization that provides personalized coaching for teachers and school leaders, evidence-based instructional strategies integrated with innovative SEL and family engagement strategies, and supplemental tools to improve student outcomes, especially for historically marginalized students.
Our professional development for teachers and school leaders are designed with adult learning as a priority. We understand that adults are lifelong learners, thus, we provide in our workshops and coaching job-embedded tools to elevate their learning into practice.
"My coach's feedback gave me the confidence I needed as a teacher. Also, working together we came up with a standard, a learning target, and a testing strategy I could focus on during my lesson. My lessons were strong, more focused, and more impactful for the students."
