North Billerica, MA, January 6, 2021
Curriculum Associates has named Tracy Senf of Outley Elementary School in Houston, TX to its 2021 class of Extraordinary Educators, an annual program that celebrates and connects exemplar teachers from around the country. Senf is among 44 teachers from 26 states and Washington, DC chosen for this honor that recognizes educators who exhibit best-in-class use of i-Ready and/or Ready, illustrate growth and achievement via formal assessments, demonstrate innovation and engagement practices for students, are evangelists for high standards and student achievement, and have been teaching for at least two years.
“It goes without saying that this has been an unprecedented school year that has challenged educators, students, and families alike,” said Rob Waldron, CEO of Curriculum Associates. “However, this group of Extraordinary Educators—like so many other educators across the country—has more than risen to the occasion. We are proud to recognize Tracy for her hard work, dedication, and innovative best practices that continue to positively impact the students she serves.”
This year’s Extraordinary Educators, who were chosen from among hundreds of nominations, will have access to a network of peers from around the country to collaborate, connect, and learn from throughout the year, as well as receive unique professional development opportunities from Curriculum Associates. They will also be invited to participate and present at the Extraordinary Educators Leadership Summit, as well as other professional learning events throughout the year.
“It is an exciting time to be named a 2021 Extraordinary Educator because the opportunities for receiving and integrating meaningful student-centered technology will never be as important as it is now as so many students are learning completely virtually,” said Senf. “Teachers who are struggling with teaching students who are working online have been seeking ideas and innovative thoughts on every media platform I am a part of. I have picked up and used several of these techniques and will be honored to share my learning with my fellow teachers as well. We will persevere together and will look back on our growth with a smile after this year.”
Today, Curriculum Associates’ programs are used in 388 Texas school districts.
