About Us

Thanks for stopping by!

We are a growing group of professionals committed to raising awareness (and respect) for educators and education through the voices of teachers, parents and students. All that we do is intended to inspire student-centered teaching and learning in classrooms across the US. (Ignite Resources accompany each show and are proudly aligned to The Common Core State Standards).

Our priority is to secure a national “Ten20″ sponsor of a 10-month/20 show schedule — where we can formally engage teachers, parents and students in influencing show content, with students standing ready to also help produce the show! However, until that glorious moment, we continue to pursue opportunities to produce additional Special Series Shows which are being considered by corporate and philanthropic education advocates agreeing with our vision — so stay tuned!

Enjoy our most recent productions — Four Special Episodes featuring Four State Teachers of the Year with a focus on the Common Core State Standards!

nnstoy hunt ccss set These Special Episodes were funded by The National Network of State Teachers of the Year (NNSTOY) and The Hunt Institute, and supported by the AFT, NEA, and National PTA, each of these episodes focus on a different Math or English Language Arts topic as we step into the classroom to see what the teaching of the Common Core looks like. Each one is accompanied by an Ignite Curriculum Guide complete with lesson plan and suggested classroom tips in a short “how-to” Teacher-to-Teacher video. There are interviews and insights by leaders and other experts to help us see most clearly what the Common Core State Standards are all about.
