“Great teachers are constantly present to the fact that their actions matter greatly.”

Rick Rood has been on the front lines of the world of education for over 30 years… he first synthesized his Transformed Principles for the California School-Age Consortium’s 1999 state conference and has been actively training and coaching teachers, school administrators, youth sports coaches, and out-of-school-time practitioners ever since.

The transformed teacher

Guiding Principles

Being a Transformed Teacher requires that the practitioner consistently and authentically reflects upon their own practice – and intentionally improves themselves ongoingly.


Children and Youth are People

The Transformed Teacher understands that we, as humans, are all on a life-path of growth and understanding.  Children and youth are no less worthy of understanding, respect, value, and appreciation than adults.


A Teacher’s True Purpose is to Guide, not Manage

Transformed Teachers understand that they are guides for their students along the learning and developmental path of life and keep in mind that they are a constant role-model for their students.


All Transformative Work Begins With the Self

As a Transformed Teacher, we understand that the improvement and transformation of our practice is irrevocably centered on our own work on strengthening and improving ourselves, personally and professionally.
