“Today’s students are facing unprecedented trauma from the epidemic which is an important need to double-down on students’ well-being. The school community at Brooklyn Landmark Elementary understands that a strong support system involves both teachers and parents, “said Elizabeth Stock, CEO and co-founder of PowerMillerning. “So PowerMyLearning gives our Triangle Award each year to an exceptional student, attendant and teacher.”

“I’m proud of Zahid, Kerian and Mrs. Sikder,” said Joyce Beckels-Knights, principal of Brooklyn Landmark Elementary School. “With the help of PowerMyLearning, our school community has brought our scholars, teachers and families together in an education that extends from school to home.”

“Through PowerMyLearning, I’ve learned small but effective ways to improve my instruction. For example, applying ‘Think Time’ to reflect and internalize what my students have learned and adding classical music to facilitate reflection has supported my students’ learning and well-being, ”said Nusrat Sikder-Ali, a teacher at Brooklyn Landmark Elementary and Triangle. Recipient of the Teacher of the Year award. “I look forward to engaging students and parents through the Triangle approach so that we can achieve more together.”
