At the nonprofit’s Innovative Learning Awards on Tuesday, May 10, a student-family-teacher “trio” received the Triangle Award for demonstrating how teachers and families play an important role in academic success and student well-being.
“Students today are facing unprecedented trauma from the pandemic, resulting in a critical need to double student well-being. The Brooklyn Landmark Elementary school community understands that a strong support system engages both teachers and parents,” said Elisabeth Stock, CEO of PowerMyLearning and “That’s why PowerMyLearning awards our Triangle Award each year to an outstanding student, caregiver, and teacher.”
The Brooklyn Landmark Elementary Triangle Award winners are:

“I am proud of Jahid, Keryan and Ms. Sikder for their leadership in bridging the gap between school and home,” said Joyce Beckles-Knights, Principal of Brooklyn Landmark Elementary School. “With support from PowerMyLearning, our school community has united our scholars, teachers, and families with learning that extends from school to home.”
PowerMyLearning is a national non-profit K-12 organization with a track record accelerate student learning by up to four months and improve key student well-being outcomes by 15%. PowerMyLearning generates these results by building the capacity of teachers and families to better support student learning and to team up in this effort, which the organization calls “the triangular approach”.
“Through PowerMyLearning, I have learned simple yet impactful ways to improve my teaching. For example, setting up ‘reflection time’ for my students to reflect and internalize what they have learned and The addition of classical music to facilitate thinking has supported my students’ learning and well-being,” said Nusrat Sikder-Ali, teacher at Brooklyn Landmark Elementary and Triangle, Teacher of the Year Award recipient. I look forward to continuing to engage students and parents through the triangular approach so that we can achieve more, together.
