“Just don’t give up what you’re trying to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.” — Ella Fitzgerald
ID4Educators is the love and inspiration because being an educator is challenging and rewarding. Through coaching, courses, and conversation, we impact educators' pedagogical and leadership practices in K-12 settings. We provide practical and impactful learning designs and solutions embedded in instructional design (ID) theories.
Coaching Session Reviews
The one-on-one instructional coaching that I received from ID4Educators was phenomenal. I shared materials before my coaching session, which made my coaching session meaningful and worth the time. I worked with Karima to create sustainable changes in my instructional planning that benefited my students and did not burn me out in the process. Thanks ID4Educators.

Empirical research has affirmed that "teachers have the most direct influence on students’ learning; they are at the heart of the instructional core [. . .]" (Scanlan & Theoharis, 2015, p. 54). Learners who do not feel authentically connected to the learning environment (remote or in-person) disengage and become disinterested in “schooling.”
This is where our mission stems. If we can support educators with planning instruction that honors and validates their learners through the processes of instructional design then surely we will evolve as educators in our forever changing world. The services we provide are embedded in instructional design practices and culturally relevant principles to enhance effective planning experiences for K-12 teachers. Moreover, our services also provide educational administrations intentional training opportunities to build the capacity of classroom teachers.
