Moreno Valley Think Tank Members Discuss Strength-Based Justice

All students want to become a “somebody”. Relationships must be built for the purpose of creating positive school and classroom climates. It is important to recognize and value the skills and strengths our students have and empower their voice. Join the Strength Based Justice group to contribute your voice to this powerful movement.   Subscribe to the Strength-Based Justice YouTube Channel. 

Ovation Tool Kit

The IFT Ovation Toolkit gives CTA members a framework for building an effective Association member strength-based recognition program.

Grant Program

The IFT Grant Program gives CTA members the opportunity to expand and build on what’s working in their classroom and school community. 

Member Engagement

First Follower Collaboration

The First follower makes a movement a reality. As important as the leader is, it is the first follower who symbolically tells others “get involved, take a risk, stand-up for your beliefs.”  With the first follower, others gain the confidence and initiative to join. Be a Strength-Based First Follower.

Your HUB Blogging Team

Your Story is Important and Needed.  Strength-Based Teacher Driven Change is not just a slogan.  It is much more.  It is a philosophy, movement, and framework for transforming public education from a deficit-based to a strength-based teaching and learning environment. Everyday CTA members are working to move the strength-based agenda forward; a quiet revolution. Let your voice be heard by connecting, communicating and collaborating with other teachers.
