Aspire's teacher-training experience offers high school, college, and graduate students and early career teachers an introduction to teaching and educational leadership. In six weeks, educators of all experience levels practice collaboration, innovation, and creativity in the classroom. Teachers at Aspire are given opportunities to hone their skills by serving as the lead teacher in the classroom, developing their own creative curriculum, and practicing important skills such as classroom management, differentiated instruction, culturally competent practice, and student assessment. Recruited from the nation's leading universities and top Cleveland-area high schools, Aspire teachers represent multiple levels of experience and are positioned to consistently enrich their craft as educators.
Aspire develops a teacher's awareness of the components of high-quality education and reflective teaching practice and an understanding of the many challenges facing the field of education. The time spent working at Aspire leads individuals to be effective advocates for education and to consider teaching careers.
