Our New Educator Effectiveness Newsletter
Delivering timely news, updates and events
The year 2014 promises interesting and exciting developments in educator effectiveness. Conversations in communities and national dialogues continue. Plus, topics like teacher evaluations, evaluation systems and Common Core State Standards are on the legislative agenda, as sessions begin in SREB states and across our country.
After all, evidence suggests that effective teachers can have a powerful impact on how much and how well students learn. Now many states and districts are at work in better defining and implementing the systems, processes and measures of effective teaching.
In my role at SREB, I’ve been focused on how we can partner with and support so many of you to advance teacher effectiveness, uplifting the profession and improving outcomes for our children in the process. I’ve been privileged to oversee research, convene with thought leaders and observe quality instruction in action.
With this Educator Effectiveness newsletter, I am pleased to share some of my experiences and insights with you. I’ll also spotlight articles, reports and other news of importance to influencers, policymakers and insiders like you.
I welcome your feedback. If you have comments or a story to share, please feel free to contact me at andy.baxter@SREB.org
Thanks so much,
Vice President, Educator Effectiveness
