Cecily Klein

Director of Teaching and Learning - Math and Science, Jeffco Public Schools

Cecily Klein has been the Director of Math and Science in the second largest school district in Colorado, Jefferson County Public Schools for the last nine years.  During her career, Cecily held the positions of Director of Math and Science, Instructional Coach Coordinator, Instructional Coach, and teacher.  She provided structures and supports for K-12 schools to implement Illustrative Mathematics. One of the most exciting things she experienced through implementation was supporting school leaders in Learning Walk engagements with Better Lessons. Leaders were able to watch students take risks and develop a strong math identity while considering and planning action steps to move their school to the next level.  “Watching teachers become excited about the level of engagement using this resource truly brought joy into their classrooms. Creating opportunities for teachers to learn how to achieve equitable outcomes for students has been one of my greatest career successes. Teachers deserve to have high levels of support when learning new tools.”
