"If we could implement more comprehensive educator effectiveness models like TAP™: The System for Teacher and Student Advancement, we would be able to reward teachers monetarily, which would help to supplement their pay and provide other professional opportunities. TAP has helped our district reward good teachers for doing a good job based on evaluation scores and student performance. This reward is in addition to their base salary; it helps provide good teachers a better living and much deserved appreciation for a job well done."Amber Simpson (TX '16)
