About Learning Ovations

At Learning Ovations we believe all students deserve the opportunity to read at, or above grade level, by the end of 3rd grade. That’s why we’re on a mission to bring evidence-based and rigorously tested interventions to schools and districts nationwide in order to improve 3rd grade reading outcomes.

Learning Ovations uses the patented A2i Professional Support System to improve k-3 literacy. A2i is a professional support system – not a new reading curriculum – that leverages and seamlessly integrates districts’ existing assessments and curriculum to help teachers take the guesswork out of differentiating reading instruction for each child. The team behind A2i ensures districts’ success by providing customized training and support throughout the implementation, holding themselves accountable for districts’ results.

Teachers who use A2i are able to develop the capacity to finally do what they have been previously unable to do: deliver personalized instruction so that every student is successfully reading by the end of 3rd grade.

  • Support United2Read partners to ensure ongoing improvement in literacy outcomes
  • Meet with school districts to present the benefits of individualizing instruction while utilizing the A2i software platform
  • Respond to questions and support needs of users during online office hours
  • Other duties, responsibilities and activities to support the team and teachers may be assigned.

Additional Qualifications

  • Knowledge of Google Classroom and G Suite Applications
  • Strong classroom management skills
  • Experience working with education leaders and organizations in the region
  • Ability to speak multiple languages a plus
