Our Philosophy
The Guild partners with districts to activate teachers’ creative leadership and capacity to consistently innovate for their students' evolving needs. Our adult learning model enhances collective teacher efficacy, the collective belief of teachers in their ability to positively affect students. Collective teacher efficacy is the primary factor influencing student achievement (John Hattie, Visible Learning, 2018).
Our Program
The Teachers Guild offers a year-long, fully-embedded professional development and change program. We catalyze educators, coach and support district leaders, and provide unlimited access to our national online network.

A year with The Guild is a year of designing, problem solving, and risk taking. We work with districts to identify a cohort of teacher leaders who we train to be local catalysts. This cohort receives individualized attention and cohort coaching, as we support them to lead other educators in a design process.

At the same time, we activate district-wide excitement with three immersive, in-person events spread across the academic year. These Guild-led events deepen teachers' belief in themselves, advance creative mindsets, and spark new connections.
