Teaching Foundations

The Teaching Foundations program is designed to support the growth and success of all teachers—particularly those in their early years at independent schools—by focusing on foundational areas of teaching.

At CATDC, we believe that every young person and adult in our schools should be supported to thrive. Advancing equity is a core value and a strategic priority. This means that CATDC serves as a resource for educators and schools in the ongoing work of disrupting systems, practices, and policies that prevent full participation of underrepresented and underserved groups. We work in collaboration with the CATDC community to create more just and equitable schools.

CATDC Coaching

 

We help educators identify areas for growth, set achievable goals, and provide a partnership to engage with this challenging and transformative work so essential to teaching and learning in independent schools.
