Pat LaClair is a Program Director at UP for Learning, joining the organization after 10 years of teaching middle and high school in northern Vermont. He began his career as a Latin teacher, but found a true passion in supporting students through personalized, project-based learning.

UP for Learning supports youth-adult teams in schools around the country as they identify, explore, and take action on issues of shared importance. UP co-designs projects with school partners focused on social-emotional learning, student voice, equity, and sustainability. We support these school teams as they analyze data and implement a plan of action for systemic change, based on community input.
