TitleWhat Attendees Are Saying
“The Institute is really smart people talking about the way we design and implement curriculum. I started reflecting on all of the classrooms I’ve been in. It made me ask, ‘Do I even know as a leader what should be taught?’”—Brandy Nelson, Principal, Rocky River High School, NC
“We are equipping students with the tools they need not just to thrive but to flourish in society.”— Quintin Lewis, Kindergarten Teacher, KIPP DC: Arts & Technology Academy
“Principals might go into a classroom and think they see a standard, but they only see part of it. But they give credit as if the entire standard was taught. And then the data come in, and they try to figure out what’s missing and what went wrong.”—Marc Etienne, Instructional Leadership Executive Director, Baltimore City Public Schools
"I've been teaching for a while. I'm familiar with the standards. But the focus on the connection between the standards was new. I saw how relating a reading standard and a writing standard could really increase my impact as a teacher."— Malcolm Andrews, Grade 8 and 9 Teacher, Boston Public Schools
“The Standards Institute is one of the few opportunities for teachers and leaders and support organizations to come together and dig deep into what the standards mean.”—Ben Jackson, Partner, TNTP
