Inspired Teaching is proud to partner with the following organizations committed to cultivating changemaking educators and promoting engagement-based education:

Inspired Teaching Demonstration School showcases the Inspired Teaching approach and serves as a training site for the Center’s Inspired Teaching Residency. If you’d like to see Inspired Teaching in action, please join us for a school site visit.

Trinity Washington University partners with us to offer coursework leading to a Master of Arts in Teaching as part of the Inspired Teaching Residency.


We work with DC Area Educators for Social Justice, a project of Teaching for Change, to promote and develop programming for the Black Lives Matter Week of Action in Schools, as well as on other initiatives.

The Astra Center for Innovative Education has partnered with us to create the National Alliance for Engagement-Based Education, an initiative designed to engage like-minded individuals and organizations and transform PK-12 schools and systems across the country.

Capital City Public Charter School also serves as a training site for new teachers enrolled in the Inspired Teaching Residency during the school year and also in their summer school program.

We are a member of the National Center for Teacher Residencies, a national network of high-performing Residency programs dedicated to preparing new teachers for long-lasting, successful careers in schools.


We support Teach to Lead, an initiative of ASDC, Teach Plus, and the U.S. Department of Education. Currently we are working with ASCD to cosponsor  a National Youth Summit, a student-focused extension of the Teach to Lead Summit format.

We participate in the DC STEM Network to support DC educators’ ability to design engaging, inquiry-based, standards-aligned STEM experiences for students in our community.

The Inspired Teaching School gives kids the freedom to think for themselves and encourages them to create learning opportunities on their own, which fosters ownership in their education. This philosophy is such a great character builder.
