We’ve observed how effectively Inspired Teaching’s teachers engage students in the learning process, stimulating inquiry and imagination. Kids love learning in this setting; it’s a great dropout prevention!

Our Mission and Model

Our Mission

Inspired Teaching is shifting the role of the teacher through transformative teacher training, building a future in which children are not taught what to think, but how to think. By changing school from a place that prizes compliance to a place that promotes engagement, Inspired Teaching will ensure that all students can thrive in, and contribute to, our complex and rapidly changing world.

Our Model

Center for Inspired Teaching has a direct impact on students by training their teachers to provide high quality, engaging instruction. Central to Inspired Teaching’s professional development is a process that encourages teachers to rethink their role in the classroom, from information provider to Instigator of Thought®. We’re committed to ending the practice of “delivering” professional development to teachers and are working to make teachers full collaborators in school improvement and reform strategies.

Inspired Teaching’s professional development model is supported by evidence-based research about how people learn. Our programs are based in best practices in teacher education and in the belief that every student possesses the ability to think critically, understand information, and solve complex problems.
