What Our Partners are Saying
We partner with schools, districts, states, and education organizations -- primarily in the Maryland, Delaware, and DC area -- to get better results.
Tom helped us support our three school teams (including a turnaround school) to build short, focused strategic plans and establish monthly progress monitoring meetings to align resources, review evidence of progress, and drive implementation to accelerate our improvement.
We have seen consistent improvement at our schools since beginning this work together.
Will McKenna, Executive Director,
Tom has supported the Delaware Pathways initiative by helping to craft our successful $2M New Skills for Youth grant application and related work plans as well as supporting partner retreats and capacity building, facilitation of bi-annual performance management meetings, production of annual reports, and in strategic advising to support on-going implementation efforts.
He is a true partner and his work has helped to produce results for Delaware’s students.

The plan and performance management routines that Tom helped us establish have focused implementation and feedback to drive our continuous improvement.
We are further along in implementation as a result, and the routines are also helping us build capacity within the organization and with partners.
