An Effective Teacher For Every Student
Teachers are the most important school-based factor in improving student achievement. The Teacher Excellence Initiative, or TEI, represents a thoughtful approach to measuring the impact teachers have on each student.
TEI defines and evaluates teacher excellence through three lenses: performance, student achievement and student experience surveys that encourage and reward excellence in the classroom and beyond.
