Celebrating the Retirement of Robin Coyne Hull

SchoolWorks celebrates a remarkable contribution to our organization’s history and legacy as we announce the retirement of our valued Managing Director of School Quality Reviews, Robin Coyne Hull. Robin retired from SchoolWorks in November of 2020, and boy do we miss her!

In her time at SchoolWorks, Robin served as a Project Manager and lead for an array of school quality reviews and site visits. She oversaw school quality review programs for National Heritage Academies and developed the program evaluation process for a federal Investing in Innovation grant winner, Bay State Reading Institute. She also helped create an online repository of high-quality video examples of teaching aligned to the new Common Core State Standards on behalf of The New York State Department of Education through her work with EngageNY.

Robin wrote and developed charter school applications and renewal applications for an array of organizations and foundations, and 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.

"Personally, I can’t even imagine what my life would be like if Robin were not in it. Robin and I had met when I was working at the MA Charter School Office, years and years ago. In fact, when I first decided to become a consultant, Robin hired me to work on my first SchoolWorks gig! She taught me many lessons on that project—how to be Client Ready, why Relationships (and people) Matter."
- Kim Perron, President and Owner, SchoolWorks

Robin relished her relationships – both with clients and with the SchoolWorks team. So please raise a (virtual) glass with us, and toast to Robin and the positive impact she has left on thousands of kids over the course of her career as an educator. Happy Retirement, Robin.
