Educator-to-Educator Relationships Project

The Educator-to-Educator Relationships (E2E) Framework articulates the essential elements and actions that foster strong and healthy relationships between educators. E2E is not just a theoretical framework, it comes with a suite of applied resources (e.g., group activities, self-reflection guides) and measurements that are designed to yield actionable changes.

Diane Hsieh, Ph.D. (project lead) and Lex Nappa, M.A., Ed.S are the Search Institute staff. The research team gratefully acknowledges the input of educators from a variety of research partners as well as the work of Alyssa Scott and Annie Pezalla. This project is funded by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.
