Common Core

talkaboutccls The topics and posts below are intended to make the work that I am facilitating relevant to Race to the the Top more transparent for others.

I am currently a Network Team Equivalent leader for Lockport City School District, and I provide curriculum, instruction, and assessment support to six other Western New York school districts as they strive to satisfy the demands of this initiative.

These posts do not provide a comprehensive portrait of all of the work that I am doing or all of the learning that is emerging from it. They do provide meaningful snapshots into my professional world, however. Sharing what I’m doing also helps me connect to those I can learn more from.

If you are approaching similar work in your role as a teacher or facilitator, I’m eager to connect with you! Over the last few years, I’ve received invitations to collaborate with others in spaces beyond this blog, and I’m learning a great deal as a result. Please let me know if you’d like to add your voice to this conversation. I will update this page frequently, so please stop by often to see what else I’m learning along the way.
