As teachers, we work hard to provide learning experiences that ensure that every day in every classroom, every student is achieving. Critically, in designing any learning, we seek to understand the readiness of all learners and set challenging but achievable learning goals. We know that improving levels of student achievement depends on all of us working together and striving for continual improvement from classroom teachers, to school leaders, to regions and in central office.
We know that the quality of classroom teaching has a profound influence on student learning and achievement. School leaders greatly influence improved student outcomes by creating a school environment in which teachers are guided and supported to be effective teachers who systematically plan, use evidence to inform their practice and employ a range of teaching strategies and methods to improve student learning outcomes.
