Our Leadership

Diana M. Sierra, M.Ed.

Executive Director / Head of School

Ms. Sierra realized at a young age that her passion is to serve others. Her mission was to give back to her community and by doing so she found an affinity towards working with children. This ultimately guided her to pursue her passion through the field of education. She believes that all children should have access to high-quality educational opportunities.

At the start of her career in education 18 years ago, Ms. Sierra became a high school reading and business education teacher in a national charter school organization. Throughout her years as a high school teacher, she learned the importance of building relationships with others including colleagues, students and their families as well as community stakeholders.

While leading the school’s executive internship program for seniors, her passion expanded outside of the school and into the community where she led her high school students in various philanthropic and volunteerism opportunities. As her career progressed, she became equally passionate about leadership and pursued her master’s degree in educational leadership, ultimately transitioning to an administrative role as Assistant Principal and then Principal. While serving as an administrator, Ms. Sierra discovered the true meaning of data-driven instruction through the use of NWEA’s MAP Growth assessments. As a Principal, she was responsible for ensuring that students received the high-quality education she was so passionate and worked closely with teachers to support them in understanding, interpreting, and analyzing their data to inform their instruction through data coaching. In collaboration with teachers, a school-wide intervention plan was created and implemented by using NWEA MAP Growth assessment data, ultimately resulting in increased growth and learning gains. In addition to serving in the field of education, Diana has grown equally passionate about educational research and is pursuing her PhD in educational leadership in the hopes to impact future and aspiring school leaders as well.
