Our team of former administrators, principals, and school leaders believes deeply that all students deserve and can achieve at high levels in a high-quality school. We work together with district and school leaders, principals, coaches, and teachers to transform schools across the country.
Center youth. Serve the best and highest interests of all scholars by centering historically marginalized scholars.
Activate integrity. Maintain personal, professional, and fiscal ideals in the face of oppressive systems. Speak truth to power and always bring power to that truth. Ensure these ideals are part of our work in dismantling oppressive systems.
Require excellence. Hold self, teammates, and partners to preeminent standards that remain unshaken by consequence. Require meaningful relationships, success for historically marginalized scholars, and centering the global majority in all of our work.
Practice humility. Approach all interactions and decisions with partners and one another with the expectation of learning and improving. Recognize our biases, prejudices, and privilege as a way of relinquishing them to ensure other perspectives exist at the center of this important work.
Demonstrate care. Build relationships with partners and teammates; solicit and give frequent feedback; sustain the team and personal needs. Confirm vulnerability and confidence coexist as keys to ensuring everyone receives and provides support consistently.
Be anti-racist. Question and evaluate oppression based on race constantly; deconstruct the personal and structural behaviors, systems, and policies that support oppression; build equitable replacements that create a more racially just world.
We love to connect with people who are interested in transforming the educational outcomes for students across the country, and we are actively seeking experienced administrators and educators to join us in our work.
We take our commitments seriously — influencing and shaping the educational world for traditionally underserved students. We’re looking for individuals with the same passion and the proven ability to improve classroom instruction and shift school cultures. If you’re that type of person, we want to hear from you.
If your experience and passion matches ours, we’d love to talk to you! If interested in an associate position, please complete our online application. If selected, you will be asked to complete our No-Nonsense Nurturer Online Course for Associates. Once completed, we will take initial steps to advance you in the interview process, as appropriate.
"Being an associate with CT3 has proven to be an enriching and fulfilling experience. I have the opportunity to lead, coach, and train educators in the things that matter most in setting our children up for success…in school and in life. I am also fortunate to engage in this work with other passionate, committed professionals on the CT3 team. There is no greater work than to do what you love, have each day be filled with purpose, and be surrounded by those who appreciate you and support you in being your best!"
"As a CT3 Associate, I am given the incredible privilege to meet educators and leaders where they are, and support them in realizing and executing on the vision for what more is possible and necessary for our kids. I consider it an honor to stand next to such game-changing educators and help them hone their craft and develop new tools to ensure every child gets what they want, need, and deserve."
