Ann Cummins Bogan,
Ann Cummins Bogan has worked in education for over 30 years. Ann began as a teacher and taught in both a large urban school district and a small suburban school district. As a teacher leader, Ann was active in many school and district initiatives and worked as a mentor to support new teachers. As the teacher co-chair on a district committee to design and implement a teacher evaluation system, Ann developed professional development focused on Charlotte Danielson’s Framework for Teaching.
As a consultant, Ann worked for several years with The Danielson Group to support the large-scale implementation of the Framework for Teaching. This included focusing on a culture of collaboration and using professional standards as a driver for reflection and professional growth. Ann also provided leadership coaching and facilitated professional learning in schools and districts across the country. As a senior consultant for The Consortium for Educational Change, Ann implemented strategies to foster positive labor-management relations in districts and schools, and systems change focused on improving outcomes for students.
