Organizational Info

Who we are

Teaching Lab's mission is to fundamentally shift the paradigm of teacher professional learning for educational equity. In partnership with teachers, we transform professional learning from the ground up to dramatically improve student outcomes. We also work with school, district, and state leaders to create the instructional systems necessary to support these changes. Our evidence-based approach is coined Head, Heart, and Habits. Head means teachers are focused on learning to use exceptional instructional materials, aligned to research-based practices; Heart means we build teacher-led communities to sustain professional learning; and Habits means we engage teachers in structured and repeated cycles of inquiry.
