Tim Daly helped found EdNavigator in 2015. EdNavigator helps parents find a path to educational success for their children by connecting them with high touch, personalized, long-term support, from pre-K to college.

During Tim's tenure, TNTP became a leading source of innovative research and a respected independent voice on teacher quality issues, publishing studies such as The Widget Effect, The Irreplaceables, and The Mirage. Tim won the 2010 Peter Jennings Award for his work at the organization. Since receiving the award, Daly oversaw the publication of the widely read analysis, Teacher Evaluation 2.0.
