The New Teacher Project (TNTP) and the DC Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) organized a data collaborative to investigate recruitment and retainment of effective teachers in the DC public school system. HUSOE ranked as one of the top ten educator preparation programs that sends teachers to DC local education agencies in the Spring 2016 report. All (N=10, 100%) HUSOE novice teachers were rated as "effective" by their local education agency. Novice means the teacher had no more than two years experience. Effective means the teacher ranked in the top two categories of the local education agency's evaluation system. In the Fall 2019 report, all but two HUSOE graduates (7 of 9, 78%) were rated as effective.
Reflective practitioners believe all children can learn and all individuals can thrive.
- They demonstrate ethical and professional behaviors with students and clients.
- They continuously engage in self-reflection.
- They work to improve the content and/or processes of their instruction or service delivery in response to their reflections.
- They develop/implement assessment, instructional, and/or intervention plans that are data driven, culturally responsive and linked to sound theory.
Seventy percent (70%) of HUSOE completers agree their training prepared them to engage in reflective practice. Completers are most satisfied with their marketability and preparation for the job market in their area of study.
