Our Story

From our years on the ground and in the classroom, CT3 saw a better way. A better way to help teachers and school leaders in underserved communities succeed on day one. A better way to create culturally relevant environments where life-altering relationships between students and teachers can grow. A better way to develop the strengths and talents of teachers through coaching and professional development strategies that are more than effective, they’re transformative.

CT3, short for The Center for Transformative Teacher Training, was founded in 2009 by acclaimed educators Lee Canter and Kristyn Klei Borrero. The company emerged in response to the countless requests we received from educators around the country to provide training in our breakthrough model of professional development. Now our partnerships with K-12 school districts and charter management organizations continue to yield positive and measurable results in the quality of instruction and the success of students.

CT3 is redefining the nature of transformative professional development with our unique training model that delivers feedback at the point of instruction, Real Time Teacher Coaching®, and with our research-validated method for classroom management, the No-Nonsense Nurturer® approach.
