Helping educators strengthen their practice throughout their career.
Students learn more from great teachers. Research shows that effective teaching is one of the most significant predictors of a student’s academic success. The link between effective teaching and student success outdistances other factors such as socio-economic status, race, and parent education levels. Teaching all students to high levels requires effective teaching knowledge, skills, tools, and support. To help guide our teachers to greatness, BSF provides funds to ensure our teachers can access professional development opportunities and trainings. This support helps provide educators with continuing education and motivates and supports their growth and the adoption of best teaching practices.
