The mission of The Learning Accelerator is to connect teachers and leaders with the knowledge, tools, and networks they need to transform K-12 education. We make the 'potential' possible and practical for every teacher and every learner. In TLA Stories of Learning, TLA will share our insights, learnings, and conversations with real-world educators and education leaders as they make effective, equitable innovative learning a reality in their schools. Tune into our leadership series, "What Will We Take With Us?" to hear how education leaders rose to tackling the challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic, and how they're working to take what they've learned into a future that supports student-centered learning across the K-12 field.
