A History of Results
Houston A+ Challenge is among the most respected school consultants in greater Houston. Nearly 20 years of experience working with Houston educators, incubating innovative ideas, and learning from experts informs our work. A+ engages teachers and leaders as partners, coaching shoulder-to-shoulder to get results. An independent analysis by researchers at the University of Houston confirms that, through A+ coaching, teachers and leaders “increase their knowledge, change skill sets, and gain understandings about students and their needs” – and that “educators are changing as a result of coaching.”
“Educators are changing as a result of coaching.”
