The Curiosity 2 CREATE Foundation coaches K-12 educators to embrace their innate curiosity and encourage creative thinking by providing tailored, practical, and leading-edge training and resources for professional development and growth. As the problems in the world grow in frequency and complexity, the mental health of our students is impacted, and teachers play a critical role in catching a student before they fall too hard. By creating a safe space for students, teachers gain respect and become trusted adults, helping students think for themselves, solve problems, and learn the skills they need for the future to make the world a better place.
The joy of teaching returns as teachers are empowered to create controlled chaos in a fun, creative classroom community. Engaged classrooms are full of energy, a ton of creative thinking, and enthusiasm as students collaborate in a joyful, creative learning environment. Students are challenged as they apply creative thinking, embrace discovery, explore curiosity, and work through the struggle while asking questions and allowing self-awareness to fade. Teaching is a respected profession and teacher satisfaction is at an all-time high as they have fun in their job, enjoy their student engagement, and teach with creativity in each lesson.Students enjoy knowing how to think for themselves, solve problems and be part of the solution to make the world a better place.
