Our Commitment to Teachers

Teaching is a profession that many would agree is facing a crisis. Torn between traditional methods of instruction and an ever changing student body, many teachers are electing to leave the classroom instead of persist in the face of so much change and few resources. Fired Up Teaching Inc is a not for profit organization dedicated to bridging the gap in teacher supports in order to help teachers succeed in the classroom. We specifically focus on classrooms in high needs communities with an elevated rate of turnover and where student poverty doubles the national average. Our multi-faceted approach is designed to engage both veteran and new teachers in an approach to teaching that not only grows the student but benefits teachers as well. Sign up for our newsletter or join our community online by following the #firestarter hashtag on Twitter and Instagram. Do your part to help keep passion and purpose at the forefront of professional development.
