IMPROVE YOUR STUDENTS’ LEVEL OF ACHIEVEMENT AND THE INSTRUCTIONAL METHODS OF YOUR SCHOOL’S TEACHERS WITH STRATEGIES FROM IN OUR BEST INTEREST.
In Our Best Interest consultants can help take the guesswork out of school improvement. We are a mission-driven strategy and policy organization with unique and deep expertise in education improvement. We partner with practitioners, policymakers, funders and advocates to design and accelerate policies and plans that help all young people - particularly students in poverty and students of color - succeed in college, careers and life.
We are thought partners with our clients. We value relationships that are grounded in honesty and inquiry because we believe that an open exchange of ideas, supported by careful vetting, will produce dynamic results. We encourage our clients to think expansively yet be pragmatic; to take smart but reasonable risks; to learn from others; and to follow through from great ideas to successful implementation.
In Our Best Interest provides school leadership consulting and teacher development. Consultants work one-on-one with school and district level administration to create ways to advance leadership and teaching techniques.
In Our Best Interest works closely with school leaders to design and accelerate ambitious plans in strategies for effective teaching, leadership development, as well specialize in planning for implementation and building widespread, bipartisan support and understanding for change.
"As a first year principal, my work with Dennis was invaluable. He has been an amazing resource and thought partner who understands the milestones of leadership. He is supportive, knowledgeable and honest. Although he is equipped with models and examples of best practices, there is special care and attention paid to individual needs of your school. Dennis' work and support goes far beyond that of an average consultant and it is great to know that I always have someone to call on for even the simplest of questions."
