Careers

Be the Change

To build an education system that works for every student, we depend on a diverse, multi-talented team whose expertise and experiences push our thinking of what’s possible. We believe in strong teams in our work and our organization, and we’re looking for candidates from a wide range of backgrounds who share our vision for a more just world.

Ignite YOUR Potential

Being a part of Team LE means joining a diverse national community of thought partners, problem solvers, innovators, and learners. We wake up every day eager to discover solutions that turn potential into progress. We’re ready to listen as much as we share what we know, because learning is an ever-evolving, never ending pursuit.

Be "The Marigold"

Jennifer Gonzalez uses companion planting, placing certain vegetables and plants near each other to improve growth for one or both plants, as a metaphor for how teachers can support one another. “If you plant a marigold beside most any garden vegetable, that vegetable will grow big and strong and healthy, protected and encouraged by its marigold.”

We’ve carried this idea into how we work with one another. LE team members aspire to “be the marigold” for each other every day so everyone feels they have others to count on.
