It’s our privilege to serve students and teachers.

PLTW is on a mission to create an engaging learning environment and empower students to develop in-demand knowledge and skills necessary to thrive in an evolving world. Our people are most critical to our mission, and we are dedicated to building a collaborative culture of talented, enthusiastic team members who will continuously improve the extraordinary programs we deliver daily to students and educators nationwide. 

We believe our workforce should be as diverse as the students and partners we serve. Developing leading-edge curriculum and implementing innovative business solutions takes an exceptional perspective. At PLTW, we find this perspective by attracting individuals from many different backgrounds and experiences that collectively enable us to meet everyday challenges. We promote an inclusive culture of equal opportunity and value the differences that make each of us unique. 

We live STEM by employing innovative approaches to solve complex problems and by integrating technological advances that further our mission. We believe in lean practices to maximize resources and hold ourselves accountable for results. We provide our team with a variety of tools to enhance their professional journey – from enriching professional development opportunities to coaching from a highly accomplished leadership team – and we encourage our team members to engage as thought partners in all aspects of our organization.

I am deeply connected to PLTW’s mission and PLTW’s belief in balanced assessment in the classroom. In my role, I help develop valid and reliable assessments. Assessments empower students to take control of what they still need to learn and also help students demonstrate the knowledge they have achieved in the course. It is incredibly fulfilling to know that I have played a part in students being able to demonstrate the knowledge and skills they develop while taking PLTW courses.

As someone who has worked a great deal with children at summer camps, PLTW was the perfect transition for me. Working with the Solution Center allows me to interact directly with those teaching and administering the youths who participate in our PLTW programs. Working here provides me with the satisfaction of knowing that what I do has a direct impact on children’s success in school and life.

I’m passionate about quality education. Because PLTW’s mission resonated with me, I wanted to be a part of that change. Witnessing how students are so eager to learn during school visits is truly rewarding, and I’m proud to work with passionate colleagues for an incredible organization that is making a difference.
