Amanda Lubniewski joined the Center in 2019 as a Project Manager across several teams. In her role, she works together with early childhood innovators to develop tools and strategies to apply the science, improve impact, and scale effectively. She feels invigorated to contribute to, and find new ways to push, the Center’s mission. Amanda brings extensive international experience, after volunteering in the Dominican Republic, Tanzania, and Chile, and working as a bilingual early childhood educator in northern Chile for four years. Her early childhood knowledge is supplemented by her experience as a research assistant, focusing on a range of areas, including executive function, early numeracy skills, the role of play in learning, and bilingualism. She holds an Ed.M. in Human Development and Psychology from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and a B.A. in Early Childhood Development and Spanish from SUNY Buffalo.
