Putting Values Into Action

A Letter From Our Executive Director

Today, through our programs and partners, Marshall serves over 100,000 students nationwide.

The past year has been marked by growth, both in our widening partner network and in deepening relationships with those we serve. We’re proud of the important work happening across all of Marshall’s programs.

 

At Marshall Teacher Residency, we’re strengthening our relationships with school partners, who look to us as their comprehensive teacher pipeline.

To support them, we have applied for accreditation to offer Education Specialist and Multiple Subject residency programs—two of the highest-need teaching credentials across the state.

We’ve also ensured that all willing, qualified individuals have access to our program by forming relationships with lenders and federal agencies that provide direct financial support for Marshall residents. Cost must never be the barrier to creating an excellent and diverse professional teaching workforce in California.

 

To meet the leadership needs of our school partners, Marshall Leadership Institute has expanded its offerings.

New programming supports school leaders at every stage of their leadership journeys.

We’ve also expanded our reach, partnering with the Washington State Charter Schools Association to develop a customized leadership program for their member schools. Additional partnerships are on the horizon for School Year 2022–23, including one with DSST Public Schools and the Charter School Growth Fund!

 

Our Networked Improvement Community continues to focus on the students positioned furthest from opportunity: Black and Latinx students with disabilities experiencing poverty.

We’re using Continuous Improvement to systematically improve the way we serve students with disabilities, and sharing these solutions with school systems everywhere.

This year, we’ve collaborated with NIC educators to develop inclusive practices for implementing curricula. We’re also employing co-teaching models, enacting Multi-tiered Student Support Systems, and creating approaches to transition planning for all emerging adults.

This is just a snapshot of the progress we’ve made.

This Impact Report will give you a more vivid picture of how our programs have developed in the past year and how we’ve put our values into action amid continually-changing times.

We are deeply grateful for the support of the philanthropic community and our rapidly expanding group of school partners, all of whom share a profound commitment to the core values that guide our work.

As we look forward, we’re excited to realize the impact our programs will have as they grow to reinforce one another, building the capacity of educators in our partner systems and adapting to the needs of each community we serve. We have big goals for the coming year, including launching two new teacher educator programs – our Education Specialist program for aspiring special educators and the Multiple-Subject program for aspiring elementary educators – and building the capacity of partner schools to enact leadership pipeline development themselves. Additionally, by this time next year, we will have defined a set of field-tested, emerging best practices to serve Black and Latinx students with disabilities experiencing poverty.

Lastly, we’re inspired by the resilience of school communities, teachers, school leaders, and—most especially—young people, who despite global challenges and personal struggles, continue to work toward their dreams. We’re grateful to be a part of the transformational journeys of so many.

With gratitude,

Adam Carter
Executive Director, Marshall Street
