TransformEd’s First 10 Years: A Retrospective

By |April 27th, 2022|

In my 10th and final year leading TransformEd, I find myself reflecting a lot on the journey we’ve been on. When I first jumped into the work nearly a decade ago, I couldn’t quite imagine what lay ahead. In retrospect, this journey has offered more than I could have hoped for: countless opportunities to work with brilliant, passionate colleagues in the service of a shared vision, and an incredible amount of learning along the way. Much of my learning, and the organization’s evolution over time, has been tied to key inflection points that TransformEd has navigated over the years. I’ve attempted to capture a few of those inflection points here as a way to share some of our history with fellow travelers who have joined us more recently and to express gratitude to those who have been with us throughout the last decade.


Honoring Our History, Looking Towards the Future

By |April 27th, 2022|

A MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER Dear friends of TransformEd, I’m writing to share that this is my 10th and final year at TransformEd. When I began this journey, our work was just an idea, a side project incubated by another organization. Over the last decade, TransformEd has grown and evolved into an organization that has partnered with schools and systems serving over 1,000,000 students across more than 26 states. I’m proud of the work we have done in partnership with school and system leaders to make systems-level changes that foster the development of the whole child. We do this work because we believe it is crucial to take action in dismantling systemic barriers to realize a future in which all young people become thriving adults.

We believe that the education system must change.

“The US education system is one of many structures in our nation that was designed in a way that upholds systemic racism and perpetuates the cycle of racial injustice. We believe that the system must change”
