shutterstock_319695485The Cohort of Educators for Essential Learning (CEEL) brings together educators who share a love for learning, education, and asking tough, critical questions of ourselves, our practice, and our systems. We welcome teachers, administrators, counselors, coaches, professors, policy-makers, and consultants. Together, we share, collaborate, inspire, support, and seek feedback from each other in the name of bettering learning and schooling as we know it. Think of CEEL as your own personal brain trust.


We have five Core Values: Questioning, Compassion, Autonomy, Feedback and Talent Development. Our Core Values unite us across countries, languages and education systems and help point us toward what is truly essential: sparking a sustained love for learning.

If you’d like to join, membership is free and open to anyone.

You will gain access to the Cohort, be able to connect with other members via our Facebook group, as well as attend an annual Summer Symposium. To join, simply read the mission and Core Values and sign up to benefit from the wisdom, experience, and support of the CEEL community. Welcome!
