Review for Center For Inspired Teaching, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Center for Inspired Teaching is a fantastic organization. I'm a student at George Washington University studying Human Services (which is nonprofit management and social work rolled into one), and my experiences interning for Inspired Teaching have brought to life the concepts discussed in my coursework. Inspired Teaching has a wonderful staff dedicated to the organization's mission. Leadership is effective in ensuring that all work is mission-driven and effective. They also have a fantastic in-house research team that constantly evaluates programs and makes sure that programming is positively impacting students and teachers. In addition, Inspired Teaching has a wonderful network of teachers, principals, parents, advocates, and alumni who support the organization's efforts to grow and make its practices the norm in schools. I've had an amazing, informative experience at Inspired Teaching and feel well prepared to transition to life as a nonprofit professional after being part of such an exemplary organization.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the Inspired Teaching Institute. In my two visits during the two week summer session, I saw teachers who began the program hesitant to participate ready and raring to defend what they learned to their colleagues, their principals, and themselves.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

allow Inspired Teaching to expand to other areas! $10 million would allow Center for Inspired Teaching to replicate its model in other cities, states, etc!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009
