ABOUT US

Who We Are

We started TeachingPartners with the shared belief that teachers are the most important factor to student success. As we’ve grown, our small group expanded to include a broad network of exceptional teachers, each committed to helping other teachers sharpen their practice, implement individualized instruction, and be the best educators they can be.
