About Us

Our mission is to attract, retain, and elevate educators of color. To create a culture of inclusivity through mentorship, accountability, and partnership.

Re-Imagine Education was created by Isiah King and Keith Streicher, who have more than a decade of education experience at the K-12 and University level. Our purpose is to:

  • Offer embed equity and cultural responsiveness in teacher preparation and professional learning
  • Support for teachers during critical early years
  • Support for aspiring teachers entering the education field

Launched in July 2020, Re-Imagine Education is focused on increasing and diversifying the teacher pipeline. A more diverse teacher and leader workforce is crucial for all students. A Learning Policy Institute study found that having teachers of color in the classroom affects students of color in several ways, including:

  • Boosting overall academic performance
  • Improving reading and math test scores
  • Improving graduation rates
  • Increasing aspirations to attend college
  • Reducing the number of absences

In this moment and time of great unrest and uncertainty within our communities and schools, it is imperative to properly influence the next generation. Re-Imagine exists to support in closing these disparities in the K-12 education sector.
