A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning.

How do we help you invest in your talent?
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”
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.
