“KIPP Austin has benefited tremendously from the expert consulting and support of the Hendy Avenue team. The resources and best practices they made available to us led to a comprehensive plan for the implementation of our own Teacher Career Pathway and the opportunity to learn from those that have designed and implemented similar systems in their districts already. Working with Sarah is a dream; she is smart, organized, and optimistic – all qualities you need to take an undertaking of this size from an idea to a reality!”

"Sarah has been an invaluable resource in spearheading Coney Island Prep’s work to revamp our teacher evaluation system. She brought with her a wealth of knowledge on the subject, and has a unique ability to think about such a system from a variety of perspectives, including new teachers, veteran teachers, teacher coaches, and principals. Sarah took the time to learn about what makes Coney Island Prep different and unique, listened to what we wanted to get out of a new evaluation system, and worked to achieve that. We would not have been able to do this work without her.”
