8 Minutes with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Principal Mark Bosco
Discover how the administrator of Myers Park High School uses ThinkCERCA to accelerate teaching and learning
Two weeks ago, ThinkCERCA had the pleasure of visiting three schools across Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools to see our platform in action. During our visit to Myers Park High School, we sat down with Principal Mark Bosco to find out why he became an educator, what it takes for students to be college- and career-ready, and how ThinkCERCA supports teaching and learning across his entire school.
Elizabeth Riley Boyer is an experienced journalist, digital content strategist, and operations manager. Prior to joining ThinkCERCA, she was part of the founding team at Impact Engine, Chicago’s first social impact investment fund and accelerator. As Impact Engine’s Director of Operations & Communications, Elizabeth oversaw the company’s overall processes, day-to-day planning and finances, curriculum development, marketing strategy, and community outreach.
Elizabeth also spent three years at Chicago magazine, most recently as its Digital Engagement Editor, where she managed the organization’s social media and reader engagement initiatives. Elizabeth also works as a freelance content strategist, writer, and communications consultant.

In 2007, Elizabeth helped open a private school for underprivileged children while volunteering for a nonprofit organization in the Dominican Republic. This experience inspired her to quit a paper-pushing job at an insurance brokerage firm to pursue a master’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University. Elizabeth also holds a bachelor’s degree in American studies from the University of Texas at Austin.
