TransformEd works with partners across the education system to leverage the capacity of our lean team for the greatest impact on the systems, structures, and supports that will ultimately improve outcomes for students.

Through all of our work, we lift up the voices of educators in the field, integrate research into our practice, and share what we’re learning to educate the field on evidence-based and promising strategies for embedding whole child approaches within the education system.

To work with TransformEd, send an inquiry to info@transformingeducation.org describing the work you’re seeking to partner on.

“The promotion of social, emotional, and academic learning is not a shifting educational fad; it is the substance of education itself.”

Nation at Hope, America’s Promise Alliance

“Adults’ implicit and explicit beliefs about and reactions to discrimination and oppression affect their interactions with young people; they have the opportunity to challenge long-held mindsets and approaches and enable healthy, supported development.”

How Learning Happens, America’s Promise Alliance

“I think we are doing a lot of great things… we are going to bring our teams together and not reinventing the wheel just bringing the great work we are doing to the forefront and involving more people in our decision making.”

Teacher, Delaware

“Social-emotional learning is not just about, you know, ensuring that students feel loved and have a safe learning environment. That’s necessary, it’s critical. But it’s not the whole thing. It’s about building their self-efficacy, it’s about their self-awareness; helping them learn how to notice what they are feeling in a moment and effectively process why they are feeling it and devise appropriate learning strategies on how they are going to adjust.”

Michelle Odemwingie, Achievement Network
