I thought I’d developed a really strong understanding of what teaching was. The Inspired Teaching Institute completely tore those notions apart and opened my world up to countless wonderful possibilities. — participant, Inspired Teaching Institute 2010-11

In DC, we’re training middle school social studies teachers to design and implement a district-wide social studies curriculum that integrates the Common Core standards for literacy. In school years 2011-13, we partnered with the Baltimore City Public School System to train middle school math teachers to integrate inquiry-based teaching methods with the Common Core State Standards.
The Inspired Teacher Certification Program is a state-accredited, 24-month teacher preparation program that prepares, supports, and certifies highly qualified individuals to become teachers in the District of Columbia.
Our flagship professional development program challenges middle and high school teachers of all academic subjects to build student achievement and meet standards (including the Common Core State Standards) in creative and effective ways.
Inspired Teachers don’t just engage their students – they engage their colleagues and communities. Center for Inspired Teaching provides leadership opportunities for outstanding alumni of our innovative teacher training programs.
