Teachers

Since launching the Knowles Academy, we’ve provided professional development to 94 teachers to help improve their teaching practice and student learning.

Scholarships

Since launching the Knowles Academy, we’ve provided 22 teachers with scholarships made possible by the generosity of our supporters.

A Carefully Designed Program

Drawing and building on the expertise developed within the Knowles community over the last 15 years, the Knowles Academy was designed to address many of the shortcomings of traditional teacher professional development.

Teachers Supporting Teachers

Teachers learn best from other teachers. All professional development that we provide includes experienced teachers as facilitators and coaches.

Professional Community Development

Teaching can be isolating. All of our professional development services are designed to build teacher community so that participants can continue to support each other’s learning and professional growth long after the professional development experience ends.

Long-term Support for Sustainable Change

Effective teacher professional development must be sustained and tied to classroom practice. All Knowles Academy courses include long-term support from coaches, opportunities for teachers to ground their learning in their current practice, and engage with other Knowles Academy participants over an extended period.

Professional Expertise & Leadership

Designing and implementing effective professional development requires a diverse range of expertise and experience. All of our professional development services draw and build on the expertise developed within the Knowles community over the last 15 years.
