    For you, just asking the question “what works in K-12 education” is not enough. You dive deeper into questions regarding pedagogy and leveraging technology and are keenly aware of the challenges educators face to empower students to build fulfilling lives. Your experience and interest in researching these issues can help us make better decisions about the grants the Foundation makes in these, and other areas of the K-12 education space.

    • Collaborate with internal teams to gather information and perspectives that inform grant decisions
