About_education

Not just an educator. An educator’s educator.  

Joe Hirsch specializes in helping educational leaders master the art and science of high-performance feedback. An award-winning educator and instructional leader, Joe has spent more than a decade in the K-12 and higher-ed markets training, coaching and empowering teachers and school administrators  to differentiate instruction, design project-based learning, and bolster student support. He maintains an active instructional schedule and currently teaches high school students in the Maryland area.

In The Feedback Fix,  Joe presents a bold alternative to traditional feedback techniques and performance management practices. He’s shared that message as a TEDx and keynote speaker with Fortune 500 leadership teams, members of the U.S. armed forces, and close to 10,000 others across three continents.

A national presenter for ASCD, LearningForward, High Tech High and numerous superintendents’ networks, Joe has developed graduate-level coursework for school administrators and completed his doctorate in educational leadership.

Joe’s work and research has been featured in Harvard Business Review, Inc., Forbes, CNBC, The Wall Street Journal and other major outlets. When he’s not on stage or hosting his popular podcast, I Wish They Knew, Joe’s probably doing something outdoors with his wife and four boys.
