Lindsay Berger has been an educator in the K-12 field for 15 years. She began her career as a 10th and 11th grade history teacher in New York City. Keen to impact students on a larger scale, she left the classroom to pursue a public policy degree at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard, developing a strong interest in teacher quality work. Lindsay’s graduate work in this area included researching early Race to the Too implementation and making recommendations to the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education on how to implement their new teacher and principal evaluation framework. After graduate school, Lindsay worked for the education technology company, Teachscape. In her role as program manager, she managed the content development and implementation of several large-scale teacher quality efforts including a statewide teacher licensure assessment and a classroom-based video product to help evaluators stay calibrated to the instructional framework. Lindsay currently works in Seattle Public Schools, where she leads the Professional Growth and Educator Support team. In her role as director, she oversees professional development systems, evaluation, new teacher support and teacher leadership for the District. Lindsey received her undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania in political science and history. She lives with her husband and two kids in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. In her free time, Lindsay loves enjoying a good latte and exploring new children’s museums (even better if she gets to do both at the same time)!
