The experiences and financial support the 2014 Learning Forward Foundation Team Grant supporting “excellent teaching and learning every day” afforded Worcester Arts Magnet School, Worcester Public Schools was greatly appreciated and continues to have a positive impact!

— Susan O’Neil, Worcester, MA Learning Forward Foundation Team Grant, 2015

The Learning Forward Academy experience developed the skills to craft, execute, and evaluate a plan that put teacher-led job-embedded professional learning into focus at my school. The award gave our school’s work instant credibility and developed the confidence to move our school’s personalized learning initiative forward. Through the LF Academy and the Foundation’s follow-up coaching calls, I gained a deeper understanding of the dynamics of the school change process and grew professionally.

Receiving the Chidley Scholarship afforded me the opportunity for a very
high level of one on one coaching. My coach helped me, above all else, to
ensure my problem of practice has a bottom line focus on increasing student
achievement.
