As soon as I stepped foot at PLN I knew this was a special place. I’ve held various positions throughout my years with the organization – made possible through PLN’s culture of developing and cultivating from within. I’ve been lucky to be surrounded by co-workers and PLN families that encouraged me and wanted to see me succeed.

Isabel Cueva, Director of Special Education

The community of folks who work here have passion for this work and its infectious. I work alongside like minded people who care deeply for the quality of care we provide. This is not only true for my program, but for every program and department. It is an honor and privilege to say that I am part of this PLN family.

Our values are at the center of our work everyday


We always ask ourselves if there is a higher bar to set, if there is more to do and if have we explored all possibilities. We achieve together through discomfort and uncertainty because we understand the urgency and obligation to strive for the best possible outcomes for our communities.

Constant Learning

We are relentless in our drive to always improve. A learning organization actively creates its future by placing high value on feedback and development. Our work must withstand all levels of scrutiny.


Our teams thrive when we can truly depend on one another. We pledge to follow through on our commitments and actively seek out ways to support and collaborate with each other. When we bring our very best as individuals, we can run to the finish line together.


Our families, team members and stakeholders come from many different heritages and histories. Our personal stories together form a tapestry of fortitude. We are made more resilient through these ties and hold our connection to each other as an invaluable asset.


We are at our strongest and smartest when we both acknowledge and consciously benefit from our differences. Authentic collaboration begins at the seed stages which means we partner with stakeholders early and often.


Trust comes from alignment of our words, beliefs and actions. We operate in highest service to our communities and can engage in true collaboration with each other when trust is strong.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

PLN is committed to centering equity and ensuring its staff is inclusive of the diverse voices and perspectives that represent the communities served. PLN is passionate about social justice and education equity, and eager to deepen this work by infusing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) into the organization’s DNA.
