High-performing educators easily equate to superheroes. Since educators have the power to transform lives and provide tremendous hope, the superhero analogy is well-suited. With superior skills and success, SUPERHERO EDUCATORS make the world a better place. We evaluated educators in both urban and non-urban environments over the past two decades, and identifiable qualities for successful teaching surfaced repeatedly. After countless conversations and observations, contemplating what characterizes great teachers, we coined the term SUPERHERO EDUCATORS. Every successful teacher has special “powers” and puts those powers into practice on a daily basis.
