FOUNDED IN 1975
EA was founded in 1975 by Jane Burditt and Lucy Stanton, two innovative independent school educators who saw the need for an organization to connect exceptional teachers and administrators with independent schools of varied cultures and missions.
Over the years, EA has grown far beyond its regional base in New York and now serves schools throughout the U.S.
Today, EA is led by Lisa Lovering, who with the founders, shares deep and life-long experience with independent schools. Lisa and her team remain strongly committed to the original vision of Educator’s Ally: know your candidates well; know your schools well; make the right match. And don’t waste anyone’s time in the process.
It’s what they do every day.
Abby was so helpful, patient, and accessible! She always replied quickly when I had questions and she was very supportive in my entire process.
