Educators — They’re just like us! Teams from New York, Georgia, and California celebrate the kick-off of Chapters.

Transforming Teaching Into A Creative Force

From classrooms across the nation, The Teachers Guild is catalyzing teachers’ creative leadership to prepare our students to be the problem-solvers of tomorrow. In this time of great innovation and deep divides, our schools are at the heart of it all. As our communities are shifting, teachers are designing better ways to keep pace with the unique and dynamic needs of our students. The time for teachers is now.

Our team is at the intersection of education and design.

The Teachers Guild is a non-profit initiative of Plussed at Riverdale Country School, that is being incubated by IDEO’s Design for Learning Studio. We first collaborated on the creation of the Design Thinking for Educators Toolkit.
