My work with Allison as the Assistant Principal and then later as the Principal was invaluable to our school community and to my profession. There was nothing Allison wouldn’t do when it came to helping teachers improve their practice.
In my last year working with her as the Principal of the Henry Street School for International Studies, our school moved from priority status to good standing in State Accountability. I am certain that our success was due to the work of a strong leadership team, dedicated teachers, and Allison Zmuda.
It has been a honor and a privilege to know Allison. In August 2015, I moved on from position of Principal, and in my new role as Field Support Liaison, I support 70 schools. The knowledge and experience I gained from working with Allison has served me very well in my new position. I am forever grateful for my time as a principal and for learning from Allison.
I have had the privilege of working with Allison Zmuda as a thought partner as we have rolled out Personalized Learning. She is always pushing the envelope on what education should look like. She is a pleasure to work with because of her energy and talent.
In working with Allison over the years, the Consortium has benefited from both her visionary thinking and her real-world strategies, examples and advice. From the first conversation on, we learned that Allison is passionate about kids, their learning and their achievement and will work tirelessly to support their success.
