Meredith Lewis is the director of school transformation at Learning Innovation Catalyst (LINC). In this role she works closely with schools and district leaders across the country to help teachers and leaders become the catalysts for facilitating personalized learning and empowering student agency in 21st-century classrooms. Before joining LINC she served for 10 years as a school leader who built strong, student-centered schools from the ground up. The founding principal of a K–8 turnaround school in Philadelphia, Meredith led the school in raising English language arts and math achievement test scores by double digits during the first year of operation while maintaining the pre-turnaround student population. She then launched a start-up charter school in Brooklyn where she was responsible for expanding the school from 54 students to more than 400 students and 60 staff members in the first four years of the school’s development. Meredith began her career as an elementary educator and K–12 literacy coach in California, Colorado, Illinois, and Texas.
