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®.

Support Inspired Teaching

Tuesday, November 29 is Giving Tuesday, a day when, after Thanksgiving, and the shopping frenzy of black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, we take time to give back to those organizations that are important to us. Center for Inspired Teaching is a nonprofit that is able to do our work thanks to the generosity of our donors. If you are able, please donate to Inspired Teaching on Giving Tuesday. Donations of any size help us do our important work supporting teachers and students, and they mean the world to us.

Teaching vs. Telling

Teachers are often expected to take on the “I am here to tell you” mindset, to put the information out there and then leave it up to the students to “absorb” it, or not. But Inspired Teachers know better. When we step into the classroom, we don’t think, “I am here to tell you.” We think, “I am here to engage you. I am here to inspire you.”

December Inspired Teaching Institute

This engaging professional learning experience continues to explore the idea of Mutual Respect in the classroom by teaching participants how to diagnose and address the root of behavioral challenges and academic struggles. Participants will learn strategies for positioning students as experts and bringing meaningful, student-led conversations into the classroom.

21 Ways to End School Days

If you missed our October Inspired Teaching Institute, you can still use the resources we introduced and explored. Our booklet, “21 Ways to End School Days,” is filled with fun and engaging strategies for synthesizing the day’s lessons and creating excitement for tomorrow’s!
