What they're saying
Sheryl has the rare talent of being both an inspiring visionary and detailed implementer. She can take a high-level idea and turn it into a well-oiled machine without losing sight of the goals. This made Sheryl an an indispensable partner to the U.S. Department of Education in launching initiatives such as Connected Educator Month and Future Ready Leaders. Her collaborative leadership style and deep educational knowledge allows her to find solutions to the most complex educational challenges.
When our district began refining its instructional vision in 2012, we turned to Powerful Learning Practices and Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach as a necessary first step to help lead and facilitate the planning and goal-setting, and to work with us as we designed and implemented Professional Learning Collaboratives (PD training) that were needed to connect our teachers and administrators across the curriculum and grade levels.
Here we are in 2016 and four years into the process and the support we have been given is the best in the business. They have provided leadership training, both online and face-to-face, and designed professional development specifically to transition WOISD to a ‘this century’ learning environment.
I’ve had the pleasure to work closely with Sheryl over the last four years on Connected Educator Month and the Future Ready Leaders initiative. Sheryl has an unparalleled ability to keep track of both the big picture and the practical details. She is a creative, systems thinker with a compelling vision of where education ought to be going, but she is simultaneously attuned to the realities of politics and resources and able to navigate both in ways that yield tangible results while remaining aligned to that transformative vision. One of the hardest working people I’ve ever met, she is a true collaborator who brings out the best in others and comes through for the team even under the toughest conditions. Her contributions have been indispensable to the success of the most impactful projects I have led in recent years.
