For even the best teachers, success in the classroom is not a light switch simply waiting to be flipped. Teacher effectiveness is achieved through a process that demands preparation, the dedication of day-to-day-work, and constant self-examination and improvement.
School Improvement Network has spent over two decades researching and developing this process, documenting how the highest performing schools in the United States have helped their students reach college and career readiness. The results of this research have culminated in a set of tools that guides educators through a systematic approach to developing effective teachers. This set of tools, along with the system they support, is called the Teacher Effectiveness System (TES), an integrated system that incorporates every step of the teacher learning cycle to help educators get 100% of students college and career ready.
