Her passion is to help schools build systems of support for collaborative teams that will ensure high levels of learning for all students.
Dr. Baker-Busby thoroughly enjoys the challenge of helping teachers and leaders use assessments to improve learning outcomes. She works closely with educators to create collaborative teams focused on using assessment data to make real-time instructional decisions.
As an elementary principal, Dr. Baker-Busby helped develop high-performing collaborative teams that embrace the PLC at Work® process. This helped teacher teams keep a laser-like focus on the three big ideas of a PLC: a focus on collaboration, a focus on learning, and a focus on results. As a result, teams started creating common formative assessments and used the results to improve their practices and determine which students needed additional time and support.
Dr. Baker-Busby was named the 2008–2009 Teacher of the Year for Miller Elementary school. She received her bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in elementary education from Alabama State University, her K–12 educational leadership certification from Albany State University, and her specialist degree and doctoral degree in K–12 educational leadership from Argosy University.
