– Jillian Roth, Instructional Data Manager at Lighthouse Community Public Schools
This time of year, many new data managers are settling into their cubicles, logging into new systems, and beginning to learn the ropes of school-based data management.
Last year, that was Jillian. Although she was a data veteran, her new job at Lighthouse Community Public Schools was her first time managing data at a school system. What she found was a whirlwind learning curve, one that gave her the momentum– and the confidence– to take the year by storm. This back-to-school season, she joined us to reflect on the journey.
Jillian Roth is a researcher, coach, and Instructional Data Manager at Lighthouse Community Public Schools, a two-school charter management organization based in Oakland, California. Jillian was hired one year ago after managing data at organizations including Mills College and the National Writing Project. She’s currently working on a book entitled, Lovelution: A Consciousness-Raising Memoir. You can learn more about her here.
