The Center for Strengthening the Teaching Profession (CSTP)
supports student achievement through a focus on teaching excellence. We don’t believe good teaching happens by accident, but that high-quality teaching occurs when there is a strong system and a strong profession that supports teachers.
CSTP provides support and training for teachers, schools, districts and the state in the areas of Teacher Leadership and Promoting Teacher Voice.
