How It Works
Supporting your career to support your classroom.
Empowered is a community of teachers, embracing a growth mindset, committed to their craft, their students, and their communities.
Empowered is building a movement of teachers. It comes together in four simple pieces.
A Freeing Methodology
Our simple methodology puts the trust in teachers to build more powerful classrooms.
Our growing market of tools and resources is built to enhance and simplify your job.
A Supportive Community
Built by teachers and for teachers, our community is a place you can seek advice, share ideas, and call home.
We’re realigning toward a better and more important purpose for education: building up high-value people.
We are more stressed and have less freedom than anticipated.
Teachers are not empowered or trusted, methods have gotten stale, and students are struggling to stay engaged in the content. Check out the numbers.
Over 60% of high school teachers are actively planning to leave the profession. (CNBC)
Teacher job satisfaction has hit its lowest point in half a century, at 31% satisfied. (Public School Review)
Anxious and stressed, many teachers get less than just six hours of sleep on average. (Ball State)
What Teachers are Saying
"We became a lot more about jumping through hoops. Requirements that make absolutely no sense. It’s just time away from teaching ... I felt I was letting [the students] down."
“I’m exhausted and burning out, but I need to keep providing the best education I can.”
“[Teaching during COVID-19] feels like we’re building an airplane, while we’re already in the air flying.”
It’s not too late to make things right. Empowered is building a movement to reimagine the career of teaching.
Put the trust in teachers.
It’s time that as teachers we demand the trust and agency we deserve to be community changemakers.
Give them tools and resources.
It’s time we get the support and resources we need to create a truly immersive classroom environment.
Create a community of support.
It’s time we had a home — a support system — to feel safe, to try out ideas, and to share stories.
Let them reimagine education.
It’s time we, the real leaders in education, led the movement to reimagine it from the bottom up.
Experiential Self-Discovery™ transforms your classroom into a real-world experience.
Discover and develop each learner's unique potential by focusing on value before grades and scores.
Develop stronger bonds between student and teacher, built on mutual respect, trust, and open dialogue.
Real-world context allows the teaching of any subject matter to accompany the development of essential skills.
When they aren’t relevant, our lessons fall flat. This methodology gives everything you teach a relevant context.
A focus on self-discovery means this methodology is built to help students find their voice, their agency, and their purpose.
How We’re Different
We’re a community of teachers, dedicated to a better vision of education.
Flipping the old model on its head, we offer unmatched flexibility built on trust and support you in your every more.
