What We Do

Dynamic, research-validated approach that promotes the success of all students. Our strategies help teachers improve classroom culture, increase student engagement, and overcome disempowering mindsets to reach each child in the room.

Cutting-edge coaching that changes teacher practice through immediate, non-disruptive feedback and guidance from coaches during classroom instruction. There is simply no other coaching model in K-12 that has such an immediate and lasting effect on teachers.

Leverages the expertise of our experienced associates to coach school leaders on the most pressing challenges facing their school identity. Using research-based methods, our associates give you the tools to help assess current levels of performance and design a comprehensive plan to lead your school toward growth and high levels of achievement.

Innovative and engaging, evidence-based strategies to improve the culture in even the most challenging classrooms and schools. Our online course is available for individuals or groups, and our virtual summer series Leadership Workshops bring district leadership teams together to strategize for the year ahead.

Our Partners

Our work has had a transformative impact on educators from a wide range of K-12 school districts and charter management organizations.

If you’re thinking about any professional development and trainings that are going to create a long-lasting impact on your school community, CT3 is definitely the way to go.

I have had the opportunity to train under many coaching models. However, No-Nonsense Nurturer has had an enormous impact on my coaching career. In my opinion, it is the yellow brick road to successful teaching and coaching. Since its implementation, classroom and school transformations are taking place throughout our district.

By building students' confidence levels and giving them multiple chances to get on task before providing a consequence, it increased by students participation levels and decreased behaviors. This process has been a blessing in disguise in my classroom and created such a routine for my students.

When I think of CT3 and the impact that it’s had in my classroom, I think of three words: engagement, intentionality, and rigor. I am building rigor and engagement in my classroom. I love that I'm continuing to build my craft as I give my students the best that I can.

As we've continued to use No-Nonsense Nurturer pedagogy and made sure that everybody is trained in the program, our out-of-school suspensions have been reduced by over 50%. No-Nonsense Nurturer is certainly a big part of that.

I truly believe in using this process to not only build those relationships with students that are so important which leads to success in the classroom. This success is shown in my ability to be able to teach, rather than having to focus on behaviors and repeating directions over and over, taking away from instruction time. I feel that this process should be used from the ground up and in all classrooms so that students can feel that confidence each and every day!

I've been an instructional coach for a long time and the difference with CT3 was that I was able to impact the instruction during the observation and teachers really felt the impact of the practice right away. They were able to implement changes more easily, because I was coaching them to do it in real time.

It’s exciting to work with partners that are truly committed to equity and school improvement. CT3 has a strong track record of success and they continue to build our internal capacity and maximize our federal support program efforts to achieve measurable, positive results. If you have yet to explore what they do, I strongly recommend exploring their services. It’s working well for JPS (Jackson Public Schools).
