The Center for Strengthening the Teaching Profession (CSTP) supports student achievement through a focus on teaching excellence. Good teaching doesn’t happen by accident. High-quality teaching occurs when there is a strong system and a strong profession that supports teachers. CSTP is a unique and innovative Washington state nonprofit organization that helps build a strong, supported and effective teaching force for Washington’s students. Established in 2003, we promote state and local policies and practices to help thriving, professional educators positively impact student learning.
CSTP is proud to receive major funding through grants from the Stuart Foundation, the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and others. CSTP is well positioned to put these investments to work in influencing the future of our community—by helping our students grow into vibrant and inspired people.
