Aimee Schade (IN '16) | TAP master teacher, West Goshen Elementary | Goshen, IN
Date of Award: October 6, 2016
As a TAP master teacher at West Goshen, a diverse, high-poverty K-5 school, Aimee Schade is responsible for ensuring the learning of both students and teachers. She digs into both student and teacher assessment data to figure out what students are learning, what they aren't, and how to address areas of need, and facilitates weekly professional development for West Goshen's staff. Schoolwide, West Goshen earned the highest possible value-added growth score for 2014-15, a year when Indiana implemented more rigorous college and career readiness standards and statewide assessments. Known for her willingness to experiment to figure out what works, Aimee taught first, second and fourth grades and served as a TAP mentor teacher before taking on the master teacher role in 2013.
