Director of Teaching and Learning
“I want our educators and counselors to feel empowered to thoughtfully and efficiently use data to inform and provide insight into the story behind student achievement.”
Barbara is responsible for representing the teaching and learning perspective within the district leadership team. She works diligently to bring consistency to the student educational experience across the school district system, to maximize student learning, to oversee curriculum selection and implementation, and to identify intervention needs and programs to address those needs.
Barbara sees great promise in the use of data to improve educational outcomes. Her goal is to integrate the analysis and use of data into the everyday teaching paradigm. She wants to guide identification of school/teacher/student improvement areas and help implement solutions to further the success of each student.
In order to achieve her goal, Barbara understands that developing the data analysis and data application muscle of her district staff is essential to driving systemic change.
