“I do this work from a heart place.”

Katherine Wieland, founder and CEO of TalentED Advisors

From my earliest days working in education, I saw the power of teachers to make real change in students’ lives—AND I soon realized that even the most skilled, dedicated teacher is just part of the solution. 

In one school, I watched the lowest-performing students transform into high achievers through the care of my fantastic mentor teacher. And in another school, I saw a child miss out on years of services because she fell through the cracks, despite the caring teacher who advocated for her. 

Once I moved out of the classroom, I saw the opportunities and the challenges first-hand while working in several districts—the NYC Department of Education, Newark Public Schools (NJ), Camden City School District (NJ)—and in the private sector at an education staffing company, Source4Teachers. (Want to learn more about my career?)

Over time, I realized that the entire system must be organized strategically so that all the people and processes work together to ensure that students are successful. That’s why I founded TalentED Advisors in 2012.

Since then, I’ve had the privilege of helping all kinds of districts, networks, and organizations get the right people and processes in place in order to make real, sustainable change for all students, not just the ones lucky enough to land in the right classroom or the right school.
