July 2014 NTI: Preparing for a Marathon

As hundreds of educators from across New York gathered in Albany for the July Network Team Institute, Commissioner John B. King shared a central message about successful teaching with Common Core Learning Standards: "We're not going to run a marathon today, but we're preparing for the marathon we will run....What we can do today is to do our personal best to advance that long term goal." More than 800 teachers and administrators are participating in the week-long professional development conference in Albany, July 7-11.
