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.

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.
