Today Duane Williams and Amanda Waldroup will join Denise and Kathleen. Duane is a math consultant with Greater Louisville Educational Cooperative. He will talk about how he supports teachers in Jefferson County Public Schools, one of the largest school districts in the US, serving over 96,000 students with more than 130 languages spoken. Amanda is the Assistant Director in the Division of IDEA Implementation and Preschool at the Kentucky Department of Education.

Fidelity and the Kentucky Mathematics Innovation Tools

This week is the final installment in our series of three for Kentucky’s journey with fidelity measurements.  Kathleen Ryan-Jackson continues her conversation with Duane Williams, a math consultant with the Greater Louisville Education Cooperative and teacher Angela Dilts-Pollack joins them.  Angela is a 6th-grade math teacher and teacher lead at Farnsley Middle School in Jefferson County Public Schools.  As teacher leaders, she leads their 6th grade PLCs, and she conducts peer observations and provides feedback and coaching to her teacher colleagues.
