Welcome to another ETalk, where we introduce an amazing person at Elevate K-12 involved in revolutionizing education through high-quality live online instruction inside schools!
Name: Michelle M.
Location: Chicago, IL
Experience With Elevate K-12: 1-2 years
Current Role: Regional Operations Director
Describe what you do in one sentence.
Keep school programs, and the teams involved, running successfully! We're the glue that brings everything together.
What excites you most about working at Elevate K-12?
I like the ability to problem solve and come up with creative solutions for our schools; every week is different and you are constantly growing and evolving as a professional.
What's a "normal" day like for you at Elevate K-12?
Every day is different! A normal day during the school year involves meeting with clients, communicating expectations to all teams throughout the day while being present on meetings/projects. The art of being available while juggling programs throughout the day.
What do you enjoy most about our culture?
I enjoy the ability to make your role your own and to be your own manager of success. You are pushed to do well, but also have the autonomy to make the job your own.
Elevate K-12's mission is to bring high-quality instruction to all students, no matter their zip code. What do you like most about impacting students in this way?
Being a product of public schools, and being a former teacher in inner-city schools, this mission really hits close to home for me. The fact that we are providing opportunities to schools and students that need quality instruction provides a sense of satisfaction to what we do every day.
Describe your best moment at Elevate K-12. Be specific!
There are so many! I think for me it has been completing this school year during a global pandemic successfully and being able to become friends with so many colleagues around the country.
Tell us a little more about who you are - what do you like to do?
I am a social butterfly in real life, which surprises people, but I enjoy going to restaurants since I am a total foodie. I also like to do nails and makeup, not just for me, but for my friends. Manicure parties during this past year were a must, and I will continue to do those even as salons are back open!
Thanks, Michelle M.
