Equipping and recognizing educators through training and awards.

Teachers are the foundation of our communities. They are supporting the next generation to explore and lead in a new world. At Resource, we believe we cannot do enough to support them.

Resource focuses on providing relevant professional development each summer for teachers as well as other needed training to enable more people to enter this life-changing field. Resource has been a leader in equipping substitute teachers, paraprofessionals and those looking to earn their licensure or serve as principals.

Resource elevates teachers and educational support staff through annual award programs and works closely with school leaders to implement positive, sustainable change in their increasingly complex worlds.
