An Insider's view of Newsela

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The Newsela office is a collaborative workspace. The office is designed to reflect the clients we serve. We have office spaces named after favorite children's books and letters from teachers posted to bulletin boards. We love to keep our mission of "Unlocking the Written Word for Everyone" top of mind.

What projects are you most excited about?

Here at Newsela we are constantly trying to improve. This is especially true when it comes to back to school time. How do we get schools, teachers, and students using Newsela at a high level as quickly and seamlessly as possible is a question I think about almost daily. I am so excited about what the start of the 2018-2019 School Year will bring!

Educator Specialist

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I've actually grown leaps and bounds at Newsela! I initially started out as an enterprise sales development representative and went through a mentorship program to transition to the account management team! I cannot measure the amount of growth I've experienced the past two years.

Emma

Account Manager

What is your vision for the company?

Newsela offers all the content teachers need. Students are excited to read, to make learning fun and engaging. It's more than accessibility and thoughtfulness and inclusivity - I want everyone to be reading, and I want Newsela to be the experience that helps them build the skills to get them there.

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Marketing is at the core about how people feel about Newsela, so we're always thinking about ways to delight not just our users, but anyone facing challenges we're looking to solve. That could be specific to personalized learning or differentiated instruction, or broader topics concerning school climate and culture.
