Core Beliefs

Engage - Connect - Inspire

OUR MISSION

  • To help teachers increase engagement among all students (Engage), build relationships (Connect), and inspire a passion for learning (Inspire).
  • Research is clear in that positive “teacher-student relationships” lead to positive outcomes in the classroom. But an important question is, How are positive relationships developed?
  • The answer is: through engagement. Positive relationships do not develop without “doing something” to create them.
  • Thus, our mission is to help teachers engage, connect, and inspire by creating effective culturally responsive models, models that strengthen the quality of teacher-student relationships.

OUR vision

 to increase academic, cognitive, and social-emotional performance among all students by engaging, connecting, and inspiring.

5 core beliefs

  • Positive relationships are created in response to positive experiences (affective engagement) among teachers, parents, students, and community leaders.
  • Students perform at their highest potential when presented with “appropriate instruction.” That is, instruction that is not only evidence-based, but also related to the cultural values, passions, learning styles, and interests of students.
  • Positive teacher-student relationships develop when instruction is culturally responsive and engaging.
  • Poor teacher-student relationships develop when students perceive instruction as boring and irrelevant to their passions and interests.
  • Students are inspired to learn and pursue goals when they have meaningful experiences with instruction (engagement) and connect with positive adults (relationships) they believe have their best interests.
