The work that Inspired Teaching does is so important. I have seen the educators in action and felt the positive energy they bring to their classrooms. To raise the bar on quality, we need engaged, highly educated teachers who, like those selected for Inspired Teaching’s program, want to make a difference in a child’s life.
