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.
This was an amazing conference with the powerhouses of education all packed into one place.— Lauren Vaclavik
Learning Forward’s Conference is the only national conference that focuses on the training and coaching of teachers. Over the last six years of annual attendance, we have been able to improve Tier 1 instruction, shared decision-making, morale, school culture, and teacher retention and attrition.— Angela Silva
