Teaching and Learning Reimagined

We partner with teachers as the leverage point for change in the education system.
Through innovative professional development programs, we help teachers build their practice to actively engage their students as empathetic, critical thinkers. We believe every child deserves an Inspired Teacher®.

Lesson and Resource Collection

I just recently conducted my [Real World History] oral history. I enjoyed every single part of it. I enjoyed meeting someone after a long search. I enjoyed listening about their memories and asking them questions. I am eager to do more.
