As current and former K12 teachers and college faculty, we know that teachers are central to student success.
When we invest in teachers, students benefit! When we nurture our teachers, they can create supportive and rigorous learning experiences for students. When we support teachers, they can reconnect to the passion that first brought them into the classroom—the desire to make a real difference.
Therefore, in addition to Global Visionaries’ youth programming, we offer K12 educators innovative professional development programs steeped in our values of inclusion, equity, shared responsibility for learning, academic achievement, emotional growth, leadership development and project-based, student-centered community service learning in furtherance of a more just and sustainable world.
“The feeling in my classroom is totally different—much less anxiety-ridden and far more collaborative. My hope as a teacher has always been that all students feel safe and supported. The Global Leadership strategies make me confident that this hope is realized.” Tricia Cavanaugh, high school teacher
