In order to achieve our mission and vision, ASSET grounds itself in the following values:
Educator as the driver of change
We see the educator as the prominent driver of change in student outcomes.
We value fostering a community among 21st Century learners and thinkers who play an active role in the creation of solutions.
We value professional development rooted in inquiry and human-centered design principles which emphasize and prioritize collaboration among those with varied backgrounds, perspectives, and lived experiences to engage in strategic thinking, program design, coaching, and partnerships.
We harness small, measurable, and individualized changes to accelerate learning and uncover problems of practice.
We believe virtual learning is as important, relevant and can be as impactful as in-person learning, all while reducing barriers such as transportation.
We value the integration of interdisciplinary approaches with content mastery.
Equity and access
We value a just, equitable and culturally responsive approach to teaching and learning. We foster a natural space that demands the opportunity for ALL voices to be heard, included, and incorporated into our work.
We believe in failing forward to increase resilience and persistence.
