Innovative Educators

An Action Plan for Teachers

In a culture that demands change and innovation, how can the individual teacher effect change that’s both meaningful and achievable? Innovative Educators shows teachers how to adapt existing practices and how to invent new ones that foster the proactive mindset needed to face an uncertain future. 

Informed by her experience as a classroom teacher, school leader, and Director of Innovation for the Colorado DOE, Gretchen Morgan invites teachers to reclaim their identity as creative, progressive thinkers. Based on an understanding of the history of American education and the economic drivers that demand change, Gretchen offers teachers reflective experiences and generative activities to prepare teachers to try something new and wise in their classroom tomorrow.

As teachers, we model being the proactive learners, professionals, and community members that we want our students to become. In this book, teachers are shown practical, doable ways of living those beliefs more closely.
