I develop and deliver sustained professional development opportunities for teachers, leaders, and assessment professionals. Topics include assessment for learning, culturally-sustaining assessment, & re-imagining school accountability.
I collaborate with clients and colleagues to develop written products and presentations that advance our thinking and share our work. My portfolio includes academic research, white papers, policy briefs, toolkits, and blog posts.
I serve as a technical adviser to assessment and accountability programs. I have particular interest and expertise in offering technical solutions under policy constraints in order to advance innovation in educational assessment.
Working with Dr. Susan Lyons has been incredible! Dr. Lyons is a transformational thought partner with insight and practical application strategies to transcend inequitable assessment practices. She understands the historical and current systemic structures of inequity & oppression that have marginalized students, and has the courage to challenge and re-think assessment models that perpetuate these systems.
Susan is incredibly sharp, insightful, and just as importantly, a good listener with the capacity to adapt. She’s great at following through on tasks on time, and developing models for our consideration. She’s also an excellent team collaborator. She’s been a valuable thought partner.
Susan is a collaborative and supportive business partner. She is able to lead complex projects with flexibility and patience while simultaneously meeting deadlines. Her commitment to equity is inspirational; it is a foundational value exhibited in every interaction. She is a joy to work with and I am privileged to consider her a colleague.
