Mission

The Charlotte Teachers Institute (CTI) is an initiative to strengthen teaching and learning in public schools.  Led by classroom teachers in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (Charlotte, N.C.) and professors at UNC Charlotte and Davidson College, CTI is founded on four pillars of strong professional development:  content knowledge, creativity, leadership and collaboration.

      Thanks for your interest, Heather. All CTI seminars are interdisciplinary and multi-grade level – that’s a key feature of the CTI program. We have teachers from a wide variety of subject areas and grade levels in each seminar, with the teachers bringing their own creativity and experience to develop new, engaging curriculum for their own students that relates to concepts explored together in the seminar. All CTI seminars are open to math teachers who can relate the seminar topics to their curriculum goals. CTI’s Artificial Intelligence seminar will be led by Raghu Ramanujan, assistant professor of mathematics and computer science at Davidson College. He is very interested in working with math teachers and teachers from all grades and subject areas in exploring AI concepts related to math, science, social sciences, technology, language arts and more. All CTI seminar leaders are dedicated to helping CTI Fellows meet their curriculum goals – in new and creative ways!
