Spark Teacher Education Institute has been working with teachers for over 20 years to centralize the experiences of working people, women, and people of color, in order to teach against exploitation and build an equitable world for all.
Started by Janaki Natarajan, Spark offers teacher certification in Social Justice Education. Teachers learn the social justice pedagogy and connect the world to their classrooms. Participants work side-by-side for an entire year with a skilled mentor teacher, learning to integrate social justice and equity content into the mainstream curriculum. The program strives to instill an understanding of self and others in conjunction with the development of skills, knowledge, critical thinking and compassion required for creating an equitable and engaging learning environment for all learners.
