Teaching & Learning

 
Objective:
The Foundation for Hispanic Education created the Department of Teaching and Learning in order to further our programmatic goals, better inform the instructional decision making at our high schools, facilitate and build the capacity of staff to act on data, and to oversee more targeted professional development. The Department of Teaching and Learning works to ensure that our mission, vision, and instructional approaches are cohesive.
 
Structure:
This department is comprised of instructional coaches, assessment and data specialists, and staff members dedicated to enhancing the college and career readiness of our students. The Department of Teaching and Learning forms the lynchpin that connects data, educational research, and best practices with the work our teachers engage with day in and day out.  
 
The department works collaboratively both with school site administrators and teachers to ensure that they take advantage of institutional knowledge, adjust curricular approaches and strategies where appropriate, and facilitate the development of collaborative structures that spread the adoption of the most effective teaching practices.
