     Turning Teaching Talent into Student Achievement        Here’s the logic… Many variables affect student success and achievement.  The variable with the largest effect size is teaching quality.  Skillful teaching is developed fastest and most efficiently by recognizing and developing teachers’ individual talents and strengths.  Over time, school leaders who can develop teachers and teaching create school cultures that attract even more talent.  And the cycle continues… to the great benefit of student learning.
