Teacher Initiatives

Overview

The David C. Anchin Center's teacher initiatives recognize that the knowledge and skills of teachers are essential to increasing students' academic achievement. The center strives to strengthen inservice teacher development through providing high quality, job-embedded, tailored professional development. This support is designed to cultivate teacher leaders prepared to help their schools improve from their classrooms and facilitate improvement in teaching and learning. In addition to inservice teacher development, the center is committed to improving the quality of preservice teacher education by strengthening partnerships with schools. Through partnerships, we work with school districts to collaboratively raise the next generation of teachers. Each of these goals emerges as a result of the center's commitment to improving public education. Our work primarily supports urban teachers from around the country.
