We Build Educator Capacity for Equitable + Student Centered Learning.
We do this work by:
-Creating relationships where educators are trusted and feel supported
-Working together to uncover and address challenges
-Personalizing our support so that each person gets what they need
Leveraging educator expertise and research-based frameworks, we take the long view on the work to create sustainable change by working in participatory and interconnected ways.
Empowered Educator Coaching
We use a set of developmental questions, mapped to our Core 8 (see below) to understand every person’s strengths. We then work together to design a personalized coaching & support plan for individuals or groups of educators.
Participatory Professional Learning
We have developed a Participatory process that is equity-conscious, democratic, and research-based. It allows educators, students, parents/guardians, and relevant community institutions to come together to collaboratively respond to complex challenges in education. This type of participation creates conditions to gain a more nuanced understanding of the root causes, increase understanding and respect between stakeholders, and build a sense of empowerment among participants to solve problems.
