Summary

Teachers are the innovators education has been waiting for and our students and schools need their creativity to solve the biggest problems in education today. The Teachers Guild is curious about how teachers can create systemic change from their classroom, as well as how their role as designers and entrepreneurs is reshaping the profession. Join us for a discussion with school and district leaders, as well as members of the foundation and venture community to discuss how we are investing in teachers, their creativity and their solutions. The Teachers Guild is an initiative of IDEO’s Design for Learning Studio and Plussed at Riverdale Country School.
