Jen Goldberg

Jennifer Goldberg acts on her passion to create conditions of powerful and equitable learning for all students as director of Advanced Academic Access, within the Office of School Support and Supervision, Brooklyn North High Schools. Her primary role is to support the implementation and sustainability of Advanced Placement for ALL, an NYC Department of Education (NYCDoE) program that provides all Brooklyn North High School students with access to—and full support for—the most rigorous courses, programs, and career pathways. Goldberg also supports all areas of curriculum and instruction in her schools through collaboration with divisions of NYCDoE. In addition, she provides focused support for English language learners, the use of educational technology to advance digital leadership and literacy in support of 21st-century student-centered learning, and the sustainability of Y-PLAN, an experiential learning program conducted in partnership with the University of California, Berkeley Center for Cities and Schools.

In 1990, she began her NYCDoE career in Brooklyn as a high school ELA teacher at Edward R. Murrow High School. Thirteen years later she moved on to become a founding member of the School for Classics: An Academy of Thinkers, Writers and Performers where she served as instructional coach, teacher mentor, and administrator of curriculum and instruction. Shortly afterward, she was recruited to work for the Brooklyn North High Schools superintendency.

The Annual Learning Forward Conference is the best professional development offered each year.  It allows you to personalize your learning and focus on what you need to continue growing.B

Learning Forward is my number one source for deep professional learning and designing effective professional learning systems for my district. This is the one conference and learning experience that I fight for every year.
