Our Impact

Teaching Improves With NTC Support

Teaching Improves With NTC Support

Stronger Instruction. Better Outcomes.

To train great teachers, learn from students.

Change starts with listening:

  • How students show up in school and engage in the classroom teaches us what they need.
  • Meeting the needs of teachers empowers them to give high-quality, student-centered instruction.
  • Responding to the unique challenges of each district and school aligns their culture and strengthens leadership.

With NTC programs, everyone feels supported, and everyone thrives.

One Teacher’s Story…

“I wanted to help other educators have that same confidence…” – Brittney Rodriguez, Transitional Kindergarten Teacher

“NTC’s programs support improvements in our system in teacher quality, which is the most important determining factor in any child’s academic success.”

Debra Pace, Ed.D.
Superintendent
The School District of Osceola County

“To really change what’s happening for our students, you have to be more intentional about every aspect of what you’re doing and your goal. When you keep coming back to the standards, it changes how you look at student progress. What does meeting standards actually look like? That alone has been a game changer.”

Cheryl Pickney
Lead Mentor, New Teacher Induction Program
Miami-Dade County Public Schools

“When teachers trust the curriculum, and trust the students to be able to work with it, you can see it in the classroom. The kids are all talking to each other now. It’s not business as usual. They know: We are all math people.”

Rob Leichner
Secondary Math Specialist
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools

“Now, our teachers are feeling confident in themselves. They know they can give information to students in ways they can access. And the benefit is that the students are learning and enjoying it.”

Michelle Johnson
Master Teacher Leader, Middle Grades Math
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools
