On Sunday, May 18, 2014, Charlotte received the Distinguished Leader in Education Award from Rutgers University’s Graduate School of Education. The Dean of the school remarked on Charlotte’s distinguished leadership in enhancing the professional practice of teaching.
The National Network of State Teachers of the Year (NNSTOY) conference will be held July 10-11, 2014 in Philadelphia, PA. Charlotte Danielson will be presenting a keynote session at the conference. NNSTOY is a non-profit organization serving as a professional home to State Teachers of the Year (STOYs) in what is called their years of service, following their Year of Recognition when they serve as their State STOY. Their focus is on providing active and meaningful roles for our members, in furthering great teaching and strengthening student learning. They do this through three critical vehicles: policy, practice, and advocacy. Charlotte also spoke at their 2013 conference.
“Due to your consultant’s seamless and meaningful transitions, knowledge of content, and rapport with the audience, the room was alive with energy and it made us all feel ready to begin the year off with success.”
“Never before have I seen a group of seasoned educators like your consultants master the art of communicating with an audience with varied levels of expertise and interests. The two days that I spent with your team, I walked away with a desire to use the rubric to truly enhance my own practice.”
“I left with a renewed look at the rubric, thinking that the rubric is the Great Equalizer! We can ALL enhance our practice by using it as a tool and a roadmap to produce students who think and are ready for college and careers. THANK YOU!”
“Your consultants’ presence and organization of the day will not only impact the new teachers that attended, but will make the year alive for a vast amount of student this year.”
“Our workshop focused on calibration and inter-rater agreement training, so it was directly aligned to our individual and collective work with teacher performance evaluation. With new administrators on the team, this type of training is critical.”
“We were highly impressed with our Danielson Group consultant and the workshop. We have nothing but positive things to share. Staff have been emailing us, thanking us. This is the most worthwhile presentation we’ve been to in a while.”
“The workshop you provided was hands-on, interesting, practical, and respectful of time limits. I heard more positive feedback about this workshop from staff than I have about any other.”
“We wanted to let you know how much we appreciated the flexibility and professionalism that your consultant provided in our unique context. It helped us to keep on track with our schedule at a critical time. For that we are truly grateful.”
“Your consultant presented a perfectly differentiated learning experience for all our principals. They were highly engaged, as demonstrated by on-topic conversations using academic language, completion of tasks requiring evidence identification, and note taking and ‘grading’ during classroom videos of teaching.”
“Our school principals said the the Framework observation training was the best training they had ever had, including the training provided when earning their Master’s degrees.”
“I have a principal who was so excited about the breakthrough work with her staff in special education. I am already getting my money back!”
“My concern about the extra time it would take to implement the Framework successfully was not accurate. It took about the same amount of time as our prior evaluation system, and the benefits in professional growth and increased student achievement were more than worth it.”
“I want to truly thank you for the brilliant job that you did with our training. I got such positive feedback from the team. They feel re-energized and like they have a direction and new tools to do the job.”
