This year’s conference theme, "Strength in Numbers," is a celebration of a decade of data-informed progress from across our network and an opportunity to discuss our future direction. Join us for our 10th-anniversary celebration. We will look back at the evidence-informed progress we’ve made as a sector but also look forward to the pressing issues of the day. This year the event will take place at the Charles Hotel in Cambridge, MA from May 20–22, 2019.

California Commission on Teacher Credentialing
Administrator of Accreditation
I serve as the Administrator of Accreditation for all educator preparation programs in California. In addition, I work on a variety of policy issues that impact educator preparation. I am interested in how to continue to better prepare and retain educators for the coming years. We are a large and diverse state so the challenge we face is always about scale and local context. I am always interested in exploring ways in which data can help programs replicate exceptional practices despite differences in local context. In addition, I am very interested in how data can be better harnessed to demonstrate quality in educator preparation programs.
