Principal Leadership Institute (PLI) Alumni

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.

Danya Villanueva

Reading Intervention Teacher, Mt. Vernon Elementary School

PLI helped prepare me as a social justice leader to work effectively in urban settings with culturally and linguistically diverse learners. The PLI faculty and staff have provided me with the necessary tools to become an agent of change to dismantle/transform systems that are in place that marginalize our students, parents, and the community that we serve.
