Author of "What Schools Could Be"
During the 2015-2016 school year, I went to all fifty states, visiting some 200 schools. I was stunned by the innovative classrooms and schools I found across the country. My new book, titled "What School Could Be: Insights and Inspiration from Teachers Across America", brings these stories to readers. I highlight the common elements of the powerful learning experiences I observed, and the ways leaders can change schools at scale by putting in place the conditions that let teachers and students thrive.

I organized and funded "Most Likely to Succeed", a feature-length documentary on education that was directed by the remarkable Greg Whiteley. The film has been an official selection of thirty major film festivals, including Sundance. To date, more than 7,000 communities in some 35 countries around the globe have screened the film, using it as a powerful resource to spark discussion and inspire change. Here’s how you or your school can view it: https://teddintersmith.com/mltsfilm/#host-a-screening
