Sanford Inspire envisions an education system where inspired teaching represents the norm for all learning environments, and where teacher and schools consider inspired learning a core purpose rather than an incidental outcome. Our commitment to achieving this goal manifests itself through highly effective educator preparation programs, meaningful professional learning opportunities for in-service educators, and high-quality resources for all. These resources can be accessed here.
