Nancy supports education leaders to improve policy and develop systemwide approaches to increasing student learning. She has led teams from state education agencies, districts, and schools to develop policy and practice in formative assessment, data use, and instructional alignment, helping numerous schools develop systems for teacher learning, improve achievement, and exit Program Improvement status. Gerzon cowrote Growing into Equity: Professional Learning and Personalization in High-Achieving Schools (Corwin Press, 2013), which analyzes professional learning and leadership practices in four high-achieving, high-poverty schools.
