Celebrating One Year of the Progress Learning Ambassador Program

In May 2022, we launched the Progress Learning Ambassador Program with a community of 185 ambassadors across the country. Since then, we have stayed connected through our private Facebook Group and have had the wonderful opportunity to learn more about how we can make progress together.

Our Ambassador Program is facilitated by Alek Turner, Progress Learning’s Community Engagement Specialist. She was an educator for nine years, serving as an ESL teacher for K-6th grade and an Instructional Coach for PK-6th grade. She also supported the development of district scope and sequence curriculum for ELAR and SLAR for K-5th grades. With Alek’s leadership and experience, our Ambassador Program has been successful in fostering deeper connections and promoting learning opportunities among our teachers.

Highlights from Our First Year

Our first year has been full of incredible highlights! One of them was our first-ever ambassador meetup in April 2023. With educators from various districts across the Dallas metroplex coming together, we were able to build relationships and learn from each other, all while having a bit of fun. (It was a Sip and Paint experience!) This meetup was a great way to bring our educators together in person, and we plan to continue meeting regularly as the Ambassador Program grows. 

Throughout the past year, we have also asked our ambassadors to give feedback on product development and enhancements through our private Facebook Group. They have provided tons of great feedback and advice, which we are excited to implement over the coming weeks and months.

 In addition, this past year we were able to partner with our ambassadors to lead Progress Learning webinars and present at conferences. We have loved hearing our ambassadors share their expertise and how they’ve used Progress Learning to help their students succeed. We’re excited to continue supporting educators across the country and look forward to many more opportunities to grow and connect!  

Here are just a few of the fantastic ambassadors who presented this past year:

  • Sylvia Huber and Eduardo Alva Lopez from Irving ISD led a webinar this past spring on how they support their English language learners.
  • Dominique Odom from Huntsville ISD presented at TEPSA in the summer of 2022 about how to drive learning through detailed reports and actionable data.
  • Ashlee Vice from Cyber Academy of South Carolina led a dynamic webinar on how to effectively use data to prevent teacher burnout.
  • And this summer at TEPSA, Dakota Baker from Sanger ISD will be leading a presentation in partnership with Progress Learning.
