In our fifth year partnering with Houston ISD, we are collaborating with a small but mighty team of district coaches and school support managers to co-create, test, and tweak their coaching model. The goal? Employ authentic student experience data and human-centered design as the primary lever for improving teaching practice.
A collection of narratives from in and around the greater NTC community. Learn more about our partners, the places we work, and our incredible supporters.
Each month we sit down for a rich and meaningful conversation with NTC’s friends (and family). Together, we dive beneath the surface. Each time we learn more about ourselves, about others, and deeper connections to things that really matter.
This month we focus on our work bringing students into the conversation between coaches and teachers. For recommended resources on student engagement strategies, we connected with Gary Briggs, who recently joined NTC’s systems impact team.
This month Tavon Lawrence shares why proximity to pain and experiences of our underserved students is critical to co-create solutions that matter.
M-DCPS initiated a suite of grow your own educator pathways several years ago to improve the demographic match between teachers and students in the district, increase teacher retention, and address staffing shortages.
Each month, we connect with change-makers, thought leaders, practitioners, and artists to get their takes on three key questions. We’re excited to connect with: Kari Nelsestuen, Genavieve Koenigshofer, and Dana Mitra.
