CREATE leverages research and resources from Georgia State University,  Atlanta Public Schools, and community partners to cultivate supportive, collaborative ecosystems that nourish and grow teachers.  The US Department of Education has recently recognized our residency for its high teacher retention rates--in particular for Black teachers--and their increased self-efficacy, stress management, resilience, empathy, and commitment to teaching. We have launched this campaign to remind the sector that there is so much more to our work than meets the eye and invite you to join us as we explore!


Sign up to join us for an upcoming sixty (60) minute virtual Lunch & Learns - a space where you can see CREATE work for yourself and meet the team behind the implementation of this unique methodology.

Every 2nd Thursday of the month from noon to 1pm, we will spotlight a specific area of our residency.  See list of dates below for more information.

On Sept 28, 2021, CREATE shared our story with the US Department of Education at a gathering for Effective Educator Division (EED) grantees.  CREATE has been an EED grantee since 2015. The name of this event was Strengthening the Educator Workforce: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in EED Grants.





We want to hear from you!

Your stories of learning more, being more and wanting to do more for the students we work hard to serve. There's more to teacher effectiveness than what we see in our classrooms or school communities. There's more to being an educator than what we see on the news. What drives you? What do you want the world to know about identity as a teacher? Share your #TheresMore Story with us @CREATE_TRP or @Create_educators.
