About Sanford Inspire

Sanford Inspire celebrates and develops inspirational educators through free on-demand courses and resources designed to support social emotional learning and inspirational instruction in the PK-12 classroom and at our partner universities. View the Sanford Inspire website to learn more.


Each child deserves an inspirational teacher. The mission of Sanford Inspire is to empower educators with research-based knowledge, tools, and practices so they can inspire students to achieve academically and socially. We partner with teacher preparation organizations and PK-12 school districts to strengthen our vision of providing an inspirational teacher in every classroom.


Sanford Inspire began with a commitment between T. Denny Sanford and educators at the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College at Arizona State University (ASU). To begin the inspire movement, ASU created 80+ On-Demand Modules: research-based, online, micro-courses where teachers learn to build strong relationships with students and enhance their instructional practice.
