12 Strategic Partners Learning Forward Partners Learning Forward would like to thank the following organizations for their generous support in promoting professional learning to advance student achievement. Guided by the belief that every life has equal value, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation works to help all people lead healthy, productive lives. The foundation supported all three parts of the Status of Professional Learning research study, and it continues to fund Learning Forward to disseminate its work in improving teacher effectiveness through conferences and publications. In developing countries, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation focuses on improving people s health and giving them the chance to lift themselves out of hunger and extreme poverty. In the United States, it seeks to ensure that all people especially those with the fewest resources have access to the opportunities they need to succeed in school and life. Based in Seattle, Washington, the foundation is led by CEO Jeff Raikes and Co-chair William H. Gates Sr., under the direction of Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett.

From the first, the foundation has been dedicated to the belief that research is necessary to the improvement in education. The foundation is thus committed to supporting high-quality investigation of education through its research programs and to strengthening and renewing the educational research community through its fellowship and training programs and related activities.

Barrington Antonio Irving, Jr. Pearl Arredondo TOUCH THE SKY! TRANSFORMATIONAL RESISTANCE Pearl Arredondo grew up in the impoverished East Los Angeles neighborhood of Boyle Heights, the daughter of a highranking gang member who was in and out of jail. She was raised by a single mother, a long-time Los Angeles Unified School District office secretary who saw firsthand the challenges facing students in public schools. She received a Bachelors and Masters in Education and Instructional Leadership from Pepperdine University. Arredondo was the first in her family to graduate from college and began her teaching career at San Fernando Middle School the very middle school she had attended eight years before. At San Fernando, she launched the school s Multimedia Academy, which served 350 low-income students. In 2010, her team founded San Fernando Institute for Applied Media, the first pilot school established in the Los Angeles Unified School District at the middle school level. Arredondo is passionate about increasing student access to technology and closing the digital divide, and is a tireless advocate for technology-based curriculum that prepares students to enter a global economy. Her goal is to make the Institute for Applied Media a model of educational reform.

In addition to his research and writing, Ungar maintains a small family therapy practice in association with Phoenix Youth Programs, a prevention program for street youth and their families, and was the recipient of the 2012 Canadian Association of Social Workers National Distinguished Service Award.

Irving was born in 1983 in Kingston, Jamaica and grew up in Miami, Florida. He is a graduate of Miami Northwestern High School.
