I am thrilled to lead the Center and build on its efforts to improve outcomes for our state’s most underserved students through innovation and continuous improvement. As a leader, my passion and focus have always been in helping others get better at what they do through collaboration and coaching. I look forward to creating sustainable change in our pubic schools in Los Angeles and throughout California by supporting the development of leaders and fostering equity and access for our students.

Ryan Goins

Education Specialist

I stand for providing support and feedback to teachers who may not receive it consistently. I’m committed to listening before sharing my thoughts because I am not the expert in the room. I ask questions so that the teachers I serve can formulate their own solutions rather than waiting for the ‘correct’ response.
