Buffalo Cloud Consulting engaged its first client, E3 Alliance, in December 2014. As part of the work to launch the implementation phase of RaiseUp Texas, I had the privilege of interviewing a dynamic and innovative principal in Kyle, TX for an article in the Association of Middle Level Education's Middle School Journal. The article outlines RaiseUp Texas' support of whole-school adoption of the Systemic Instruction Model with integrated principal coaching and professional learning communities. In the process, I witnessed students who were engaged, inquisitive, and passionate about learning. I can't show pictures of students but I can show how rich and engaging the classrooms are. It was a joy to watch. And, the achievement gap is closing at this school. You can check out the RaiseUp Texas program by tuning in to an upcoming AMLE webinar.
