With over 15 years of experience in urban education, Kanika Mobley is a true advocate for teachers and leaders. Her commitment to student achievement and closing the achievement gap is what ultimately led her to create Education Is Power Consulting.

While teaching in the most under-served communities, it was apparent to her that the quality of education students received was neither equal throughout the school nor equal to the quality they would receive in neighboring wealthy suburbs. This drove her to prove that a child’s zip code was not a determinant of their potential.

In her former roles, Mrs. Mobley served as a teacher leader and/or instructional coach in Atlanta Public Schools, Excel Public Charter School in Washington, DC and Achievement First Charter School network. As a literacy coach consultant for the University of Chicago’s Impact, Kanika supported charter school teachers and leaders with the implementation of the STEP (Strategic Teaching and Evaluation of Progress), assessment geared towards students in PK-3, helping teachers use data to create targeted instructional reading plans and helping schools develop curriculum based on a balanced literacy approach. She has also served as a Camp S.M.A.R.T facilitator with Teachers College’s Center for Technology and School Change.  Through coaching and professional development sessions, she has assisted teacher in Yonkers Public Schools with integrating technology into project-based units using the Understanding by Design framework.

After graduating with a degree in Child Development from Spelman College, Kanika earned a Reading Endorsement certification in the state of Georgia. She also participated in the KIPP School Leadership Program while earning a M.A. in Educational Leadership with a specialization in Charter School Leadership.
