Dr. Lande has dedicated her professional endeavors to advocating for teachers and students around the globe. It is her aspiration that every classroom in every school is one that she would want her own three children to learn in; a lens through which she continually measures her research, writing, and professional development efforts.
Dr. Lande currently serves as a board member for the Aspirations Academy Trust in England, and is engaged in a number of research and writing projects on the topic of teacher voice and aspirations. She earned her doctorate in curriculum and instruction from Boise State University, and was a James Madison Fellow at Georgetown University. Prior to TVAIC, Dr. Lande worked with state departments of education across the country in partnership with a U.S. Department of Education content center, directed a state-wide reform effort, and engaged in a wide variety of consultancy roles at the international, state, and local level on education topics including systems reform, standards, assessment, and instructional strategies that promote individualized learning and achievement for all students.
Dr. Lande’s roots are in teaching, having taught at both the high school and university level. She still considers herself to be a teacher at heart, and finds it a great privilege to partner with amazing educators around the world who are hard at work creating conditions where teachers and students can achieve their dreams.
Dr. Lande co-authored the recently published book Teacher Voice: Amplifying Success.
