"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed
citizens can change the world.
Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
Real, sustainable progress in education always comes from
the hands and hearts of dedicated teachers who are guided and supported
by respectful, visionary leaders. Today, more than ever before, there
is a need for leaders within our profession (both inside and outside the
classroom) with the ability to put all the pieces together by
anticipating needs, being knowledgeable about challenges, and finding
workable solutions to impossible problems.
The Achieving by Changing Initiative is committed to
developing and supporting educators that others will want to follow into
the next generation of learning!

The new quarterly newsletter focuses on the work going on around the country to implement the Common
Core State Standards. New data from Primary Sources, a survey of 20,000
teachers nationally, shows that 73% of teachers are enthusiastic
about implementing the standards in their classrooms and most believe
they will be positive for their students. As you’ll see, there are more
and more resources becoming available to help them.
