Associate Director (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – December 28, 2015
Great organization with a monumental task. Committed, Educated Professional staff. The politics of public education sometimes interfered with our execution of policies and regulations but the commitment of agency staff to get it right was never in question.
Clear guidance proffered by the Ohio Revised and Administrative Codes
Great colleagues to work with but unsure decisions from the Legislature kept us guessing
Office of Curriculum and Assessment (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – March 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.
