Katharina Shepler


Indianapolis Teaching Policy Fellow Katharina Shepler was among the 12 teachers selected for the new Change Agent Fellowship that Teach Plus launched in 2015 in partnership with the Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS).  In collaboration with their principal, every Change Agent successfully led a school effort to identify and solve real challenges for their students.  As a Change Agent, Katharina led the adoption of standards-based grading for her school to ensure that students’ grades reflected their understanding of the skills they need to be successful.  Her work led to the entire district adopting a new technology system that allows for standards-based grading in every school in IPS.
