“Dr. Alford, has propelled John Hopkins Middle School forward academically over the past three years. She has been a mentor, a think partner, and a professional friend to me personally as she has helped me transform into a more intentional and strategic instructional leader at my school. Dr. Alford’s feedback to our teachers regarding their instructional practice and strategies that could easily be implemented to provide higher levels of standards-based instruction and student engagement has been a great asset to our school. Her guidance and mentorship of my assistant principals and me have helped us begin to observe the needed look-fors during classroom walkthroughs and ask the correct questions to teachers that will move the instructional needle to help move students towards standards proficiency and mastery.”
