Educator Evaluation

ESE's Spring Convening 2016: Expanding Opportunities for Every Student, Every Educator, Every School

On May 16th and 17th, 2016, representatives from approximately 150 districts and collaboratives and 33 educator preparation programs joined the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (ESE) for a full day of interactive workshops featuring promising practices from MA educators. Workshop topics included:

  • Giving and receiving high quality feedback
  • Looking at data from an equity lens
  • District and educator preparation partnerships
  • ELA, math, and science curriculum resources

Thank you to all the participants and presenters who made ESE's 2016 Spring Convening a huge success! More than ever, this year's event was filled with collaboration, networking, and examples of the positive impact educator effectiveness work holds for students. In particular, ESE would like to thank all of the presenters, particularly Liz Garden, principal of Florence Roche School in Groton, who was the keynote speaker Monday, and Techla Connolly, a middle school English language arts/history teacher in Revere, who was the keynote speaker Tuesday. The Department is also grateful to the Franklin High School Jazz Band, which played during registration Monday; Franklin High School, which provided student artwork to display throughout the convening; and the Worcester Public Schools, which contributed art for Tuesday morning.
