7. According to principal Gregory M. Hodge, Committed teachers, who come to work early, stay late, and call parents if children dont show up can be just the thing students need.
A study conducted in 1998 by the Education Trust found:
Students who have several effective teachers in a row make dramatic gains in achievement
Teachers make a difference

Second 10-12 Years
Third 10-12 Years
9. If a student is fortunate to have a highly effective teacher for the first three years of school they will be well ahead of the curve.
If a student has an effective teacher they will be on the normal curve of achievement
If a student has a ineffective teacher they will be extremely behind the curve.
Highly Effective Teachers
prove to have the highest student gains in the classroom
Value Added usesTEST SCORES over a PERIOD OF TIME to show individual teachers EFFECTIVENESS
+ means that students gain abovea years required material
No Change means that students gains a years required material

10. When students are faced with ineffective teachers for a few years they fall behind
This is hurtful for the students
