Aspire seeks to equip young people with the tools necessary to bring new ideas to classrooms and communities. Aspire develops their awareness of the components of a high-quality education, thereby leading them to be effective advocates for education and to consider teaching as a career.
Aspire teachers are high school and college students, mentored by experienced educators who offer an introduction to teaching. In six weeks, educators of all experience levels practice collaboration, innovation, and creativity in the classroom.
Aspire teachers hone their skills by:
serving as the lead teacher in the classroom
developing creative curriculum
and practicing classroom management, differentiated instruction, and student assessment
“Aspire is a beautiful space for teaching and learning that has benefited me in numerous ways and helped to shape my perspective on education.”
Madelon, Core Teacher
