This year, Teaching Trust is working with over 750 educators across 140+ schools through intensive professional development, coaching, and support. We are proud to have expanded the reach of our Leadership Teams program to Fort Worth through a partnership with the Fort Worth ISD, TEA, & ESC Region 11. This year, for the first time 14 campuses and 4 principal supervisors are experiencing this program in Fort Worth.

Bambrick’s Back!

In September, we welcomed national education leader Paul Bambrick-Santoyo back to Dallas for two days of professional learning and development. During day one, principal supervisors joined Paul Bambrick-Santoyo to learn and practice strategies to support the instructional growth of school leaders, bolster instructional practices across their portfolio of schools, and ensure students are learning to their greatest potential. The following day, campus teams engaged in intensive training focused on leading effective weekly data meetings, in which participants practiced planning and leading meetings that leverage assessment data to maximize student achievement.

The Teaching Trust Alumni Network also conducted several multi-part workshops including the following:

  • D3 - Deconstruct, Design, Deliver: Math Systems for Student Achievement -  Attendees learned to design and implement effective math instruction aimed at developing student fluency and number sense, helping students to articulate their math knowledge, and building student ownership over math growth.

  • Readers for Life: Developing and Executing a Vision for Excellent Reading Instruction - Campus teams created a vision for excellent literacy instruction that fosters a love of reading and actively engages students in rigorous reading and literary discourse.

  • Guided Reading: Building Foundations in K-2 Literacy - Educators developed skills to improve the quality of K-2 literacy instruction across their campuses.

We look forward to continuing to provide opportunities for educators across Dallas-Fort Worth to experience high-quality professional development and hope to see you at the Third Annual Leading to Impact Summit on February 3!
