NAATE is a rigorous program of learning that cultivates an elite corps of extraordinary teacher leaders committed to the classroom and dedicated to closing the achievement gap in our nation's high-needs schools.
NAATE is a rigorous program of learning that takes the very best teachers and makes them better,
inside and outside their classrooms, enabling them to address the achievement gap directly and with their peers.
NAATE Teacher Fellows stay teaching longer and better, and help lift their peers as informal leaders.
