We invite teachers to explore effective teaching strategies in mathematics to equip students with critical-thinking skills for the real world.
Our coaching strategies lay the groundwork for teachers to grow their own skills as they apply evidence-based best practices in their classrooms.
Local teacher-leaders build professional networks that advance educational instruction and inspire broad transformation.
Through collaborative settings, we invite teachers to discover the light-bulb moments they may never have had in school, giving them the same kind of experiences they want for their students. In growing networks of peers, teachers learn effective methods and best practices and are inspired to apply their new knowledge and skills with their students.
Teachers apply what they learn in their classrooms as they engage with coaches in ongoing reflection — leading to action steps for deepening students’ understanding. Teachers are encouraged to take risks as coaches offer the practical and emotional support needed to give teachers the tools and confidence to implement these strategies successfully in their classrooms.
We generate local networks of educators who are continuously transforming their own teaching practice and want to lead others to do the same. These teachers share their knowledge and skills across communities, often becoming presenters at conferences and workshops. They function as leaders among their peers, ensuring sustainable change far beyond the reach of traditional training programs.
Education experts agree that the most effective form of classroom teaching places students at the center. Student-centered learning replaces the teacher as the source of knowledge with students actively discovering knowledge for themselves. Students identify what they want to learn and how they’re going to learn it.
Our theory of change describes the logic behind our strategic operations and their connection to the desired long-term outcomes. We serve local educators in the US, Guatemala, and Ecuador through collaborative partnerships to generate a change in math teaching practices and leadership. When these behavior shifts happen, they strengthen student critical-thinking skills and ultimately drive greater social justice.
