We partner with schools, networks, districts, and states along our five core pillars of work, each designed to support great teaching, leading, and learning:
Engage in design, planning, and implementation support to help you meet your talent goals, including development, evaluation, compensation, career pathways, and retention.
Collaborate with you to set academic vision and strategy and then support the design, training, and implementation of your academic program.
Provide one-on-one coaching for school and district leaders, customized to their unique needs, and facilitation of collaborative cohorts to learn and problem-solve with peers.
Create and facilitate professional learning opportunities for educators of all levels on both talent and academic topics.
Partner with you to articulate goals and a clear plan for your organization, and support improvements to staffing plans and processes to make them a reality.
The Hendy Methodology
Understanding Your Needs
We will first work with you to clearly define the problem and to understand the current strengths and challenges in the system in order to create a plan customized to best meet the needs of schools and teachers.
Utilizing Research and Best Practices
We are committed to using national best practices to support the work. In addition to published research, this also includes utilizing our extensive network of leaders in the field and working with the best vendors.
Focusing on the “How”: Change Management and Stakeholder Engagement
We have a strong focus on change management, transparent communication strategies and continuous feedback because we believe that success ultimately lies in how teachers and leaders experience the change. Therefore, we work directly with teachers and leaders (or support you to work with them) to gather their input and build their investment.
Commitment and Collaboration
The strong commitment of all stakeholders – from teachers and school leaders to union leadership and district leadership – is required for success. Therefore, we work with you to build commitment and opportunities for collaboration across stakeholder groups.
Learning and Improving
We strongly believe in a continuous improvement model where we can learn quickly and improve our model to best meet teacher and school needs. Whenever possible, we will build piloting into the design process and work with you to modify and improve your customized model.
