I’m Kat Clark.
I left Apple’s education team last year to start Teachers in Their Power. The project amplifies teachers’ stories so we can better understand their humanity, their expertise, and their impact on students.
Over the past ten years, I worked at four schools before moving into tech to help educators buy homes in expensive cities. I was the 11th employee at Landed, where I was the first marketing hire. At Apple, I pitched and launched Apple Learning Coach — a free professional learning program that trains instructional coaches, digital learning specialists, and other coaching educators to help teachers get more out of technology. I led development of the learning experience design as well as the marketing strategy and built out the program with a talented team.
I value community, compassion, decisiveness, empathy, honesty, and joy. Most of all, I value children.
Teachers in Their Power is seeking collaborators, grants, and partnerships to help change the narrative about the teaching profession. Please reach out if you’d like to connect!
I am also available as a fractional CMO and consultant for edtech startups and mission-driven organizations. Learn more about what I offer here.
