Learning Coordinator, Alexandria

“I find it to be a joy and a privilege to work with the youth in my communities. I am lucky to be a part of Higher Achievement because I understand what it feels like to be overlooked and under-resourced in the world of education. Sometimes all it takes is for one person to recognize a student’s potential and then assist that student in identifying their own strengths. Working for an organization that focuses on this is fantastic. I know how important it is to be seen and heard, Higher Achievement’s staff work hard to make that happen.”
