Robin Coyne Hull is a consultant with SchoolWorks and the company’s former Managing Director of School Quality Reviews.
In her time at SchoolWorks, Hull has served as project manager and lead for an array of school quality reviews and site visits. She has overseen school quality review programs for the National Heritage Academies and developed the program evaluation process for a federal Investing in Innovation grant winner, the Bay State Reading Institute.
Hull has also written charter school applications and renewal applications for an array of organizations and foundations. As a result, charters and renewals were awarded by Tennessee authorizers to open schools that include KIPP, Gestalt Community Schools, Grizzlies Prep, and the Power Center Academy. SchoolWorks’ long-term relationship with the National Heritage Academies allowed Hull to provide key insights on the organization’s professional development systems and the ways in which it cultivates leadership, work that “speaks to the value of having an external evaluator as a thought partner,” she says.
Hull relishes her relationships with principals and clients, as well as the ability to improve learning opportunities for students—and herself. “A lot of projects put me on a learning threshold,” she says. “My job is continual professional development because I learn from our clients and our partners every day.”
