Principal Leadership Institute (PLI) Alumni

I had always been a social justice advocate in my heart, but PLI empowered me with the knowledge and confidence I needed to rise up as a leader in the fight for educational equity. PLI also introduced me to a powerful network of like-minded, visionary educators who are also seeking to create enduring and positive change in urban schools. Together, I believe we can begin to truly and fundamentally disrupt the systems that perpetuate educational inequity in Los Angeles.

PLI is a pedagogic space like none that I have encountered – a transformative one – that nurtured my mind and pushed me to grow as an instructional leader. I joined a collective group of caring educators eager to transform schools and left the program with a strong network of lifelong friends, along with a comprehensive set of foundational skills to support our youth and communities in relevant and purposeful ways.
