Teachers are at the heart of our programs. Their collaboration with families makes all the difference.
Capacity building / training
Teachers are trained on giving data-driven instruction and accurate assessments. Our curriculum includes hands-on family engagement training. Over the course of our programs, teachers receive personalized, real-time coaching to further develop them. The intensive PD gives teachers skills they can take with them back to their classrooms.

“One of the best things that happened to me was watching children begin to change their voices when they came to different punctuation marks. Then at our celebration several parents thanked me for all my help and said they noticed how their child understood what punctuation marks mean in a sentence. It was very rewarding to know students are using what they learn in Springboard at home.”
“Summer at Springboard has taught me how important family engagement is in a child’s education.”

“So many parents want to help and see their children growing academically but do not know where to start. After coming to the parent workshops, though, they leave having specific skills to work on with their child that they know will work! Knowing they are doing the “right thing” is so empowering to parents and I love that I am able to give that to them.”
“Just like it helps the students’ bridge the summer learning gap, it helps with me as a teacher the same way. It helps keep my skills fresh and introduces new ways to grow and expand as an educator.”
