Column: Taking the time to reflect on teaching and learning


Every day across Salem, teachers and principals do the hard work of getting to know each of their students. They build their judgment about each student’s strengths and weaknesses, and they develop different strategies for helping each student learn. At ANet, we have deep respect for the complexity of this task, and through our partnership with Salem’s schools, we hope to provide teachers with the tools and support to make this easier. There’s still a lot to do, but we are excited for the road ahead.


Karn Engelsgjerd is the executive director of The Achievement Network in Eastern Massachusetts. ANet is a national nonprofit organization that helps teachers improve instruction through better planning, collaboration and data use. This is one in a series of columns from the Community Advisory Board for the Salem schools.
