I have worked with the Board and staff of PEN for the last several years. What stands out to me is the clarity and purity of their dedication. I seldom see a not-for-profit so focused to simply helping their client population. I have worked with the Board in strategic planning, board governance, and project management. I have volunteered in the SAFE program. Everywhere in the organization I find people of heart and intelligence. PEN grew up attending to the needs of LD kids in San Francisco, but it's clear to me that they will eventually shape the national conversation around learning differences. They have the secret sauce for connecting parents, kids, teachers, and professionals; the momentum of their work will be unstoppable.

From the beginning, PEN has been an organization dedicated to bringing students with learning differnces, their parents and educators together to discover the BEST PRACTICES for the students' success.
Their service and contribution to the Bay Area education commuity is profound! As an elemebrtaty school principal, I have benefited from their workshops, services and have directed a number of parents to them for support and information on how to best help their child prosper!

I have seen PEN effectively work with parents of children wth leanring differnces and with educators.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
