Back to School: New Coaches Prepare to Make an Impact on Students

The Lana Learn team heads back to school with four exceptional staff additions to our Washington, DC programs.

As we head back to school, I’m excited to share the news of four new staff members joining the Lana Learn team in Washington, DC. We are onboarding three Academic Coaches to carry out the OSSE High-Impact Tutoring (HIT) Program at our partner schools. Additionally, we brought on a Site Coordinator for our 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21CCLC) Program. All four meet the Lana Learn criteria: exceptional educators/youth developers. It’s important that we recruit staff who not only possess the necessary subject mastery, but also share our passion for personalized student support.
