About Knowles

Established in 1999 by Janet H. and C. Harry Knowles, the Knowles Teacher Initiative is a nonprofit organization that supports a national network of mathematics and science teachers who are collaborative, innovative leaders improving education for all students in the United States. Through the Knowles Teaching Fellows Program, we support early-career, high school mathematics and science teachers in their efforts to develop teaching expertise and lead from the classroom. Through the Knowles Academy, launched in 2017, we offer professional development experiences for teachers through summer courses and services to schools and districts.

As we reflect on the last 20 years and look forward to the future, we want to express our deep gratitude to our co-founders, Ms. Janet H. Knowles and Mr. C. Harry Knowles, for their vision and the generous endowment that created and has sustained this organization from the start.

Additionally, we’d like to recognize the very generous multi-year pledge and intent to give from Knowles co-founder and trustee Mr. C. Harry Knowles and Knowles trustee Dr. Lucy Balian Rorke-Adams. Their continued generosity will provide stability for the organization and for our efforts to transform mathematics and science education. Last, we would like to thank all of our donors for supporting teachers to be leaders in educational improvement through the Knowles Academy.
