Inspire, Educate, Achieve

When Students Are Inspired, Amazing Things Can Happen

A child's education is not only defined by the knowledge they obtain, but also by the people that guide them as they learn and mature. Textbooks are only part of the equation when it comes to a rewarding education. Our focus is to help Arizona students grow and maximize their potential by putting teachers that inspire in every classroom. We've partnered with the Sanford Inspire Program because—simply put—they get it.

A Mission With Meaning

The Sanford Inspire Program provides teachers with personalized professional development that supports them in leading students to significant social and academic gains.

  • FREE, self-guided online courses
  • Research-based
  • Professional Development certificate awarded upon completion
  • Course certificates count toward ADE recertification
"Each child deserves an inspirational teacher; one who possesses excellent instructional and relationship building skills. We design resources to support teachers in working toward educational equity. That is, developing the knowledge, skills, and mindsets to support the academic and social success of each student.

We partner with K-12 schools and teacher preparation organizations to realize our vision of an inspirational teacher in every classroom."
