ASCD's mission is to empower educators to achieve excellence in learning, teaching, and leading so that every child is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.
We provide tools for educators to create engaging STEAM classrooms so that ALL children can find their own paths towards success in life.
As an educator, we also help you take charge of your own professional development by giving you resources to determine HOW and WHEN you want to learn and engage:
ASCD has tens of thousands of resources in a variety of print and digital formats to mitigate the challenges you face everyday.
WHENEVER and HOWEVER you need support, ASCD is here for you.
