Who We Are

Instruction Partners is a team of educators guided by a simple vision: you should be able to walk into any classroom and see students engaged in the kind of challenging, inspiring, and supportive learning that will open doors and help them reach their full potential. We believe this vision can be a reality for every child, in every classroom, in every school, in every district.

We know this is possible because we’ve seen instruction transformed. Our work was born in Tennessee as part of the TNCore effort that helped student learning grow at historic rates on NAEP. We saw how hungry teachers and leaders are to help their students learn, and how - when given the right support - educators can improve instruction quickly so students learn more.
