TLI is an endeavor of the National Education Association. We are proud to be supported in partnership with the Center for Teaching Quality (CTQ) and the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS).
The National Education Association is the nation’s largest professional employee organization, representing more than 3 million elementary and secondary teachers, higher education faculty, education support professionals, school administrators, retired educators, and students preparing to become teachers.
The Center for Teaching Quality is a national nonprofit that connects, readies, and mobilizes teacher leaders to transform K-12 schools and the teaching profession. Much of CTQ’s work takes place in the Collaboratory, a virtual community open to teachers and all who value them as leaders.
The mission of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards is to advance student learning and achievement by establishing the definitive standards and systems for certifying accomplished educators, providing programs and advocating policies that support excellence in teaching and leading, and engaging National Board Certified Teachers and leaders in that process.
