Office of Curriculum and Assessment (Current Employee) –  Columbus, OHMarch 31, 2014
After being in the classroom for over 30 years, I had the opportunity to view education from another lens. Coaching teachers while big changes are being made, Common Core State Standards and PARCC Assessments, is definitely challenging and rewarding. Developing sessions on professional development forced me to stay on top of all the changes. I am also involved with PARCC as a member of the Operational Working Group (OWG) reviewing and reconciling items created by Pearson and ETS. It has been a wonderful experience working with educators from across the country. Our conversation have been rich and enlightening.
Pros
Travel and working with many other educators here in Ohio as well as across the country
Cons
My salary was not what I expected.
