Dr. Christina Counts Earns Distinction as an Accredited Learning Environments Planner

Our very own VP of Education for MiEN Environments, Dr. Christina Counts, has recently received the Accredited Learning Environments Planner (ALEP) designation, a mark of excellence developed to reflect the knowledge, skills, and abilities of a competent educational facility planner.

Before joining MiEN in late 2019, Dr. Counts spent 2 years working with a national K-12 furniture dealer and previously worked in education for over 17 years with experience as a classroom teacher, district instructional leader, school administrator, and digital and innovative learning designer.

“The ALEP credential was designed to elevate professional standards, enhance individual performance and identify those in the educational environment industry who demonstrate the knowledge essential to the practice of educational facility planning,” said Dr. Counts. “I’m honored to have secured this designation and share my knowledge with our customers.”

The Association for Learning Environments, creator of the ALEP credential, observes “An individual who has been certified by A4LE has achieved the highest qualification in our profession.  Clients can appoint ALEPs with confidence that they have been examined for competence by our association.”

The Association for Learning Environments (A4LE) is the only professional organization whose principal purpose is improving the places where children learn.  A4LE embraces a diverse group of professionals with one single goal – building healthy, safe, high performance, and sustainable learning environments that enhance student and teacher performance and support culture and community vitality.

Congratulations Dr. Counts on this mark of true distinction!
