Anne OBrien

I joined the staff of the Learning First Alliance (LFA) in September 2007. LFA is a partnership of national education organizations representing more than 10 million members dedicated to improving student learning in America's public schools. We share examples of success, encourage collaboration at every level, and work toward the continual and long-term improvement of public education based on solid research.

I come to this work from a classroom perspective. I taught high school physical science, biology and remedial math in Reserve, Louisiana, for two years as a Teach For America corps member. I've also worked on both school- and community-based mentoring programs.
