What We Do
Creative Freedom Awards is a 501(c)(3) teacher-led organization which celebrates and shares the creative and inspiring work of public school teachers in the Triangle (Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill, NC). Founded in January 2013 and based in Durham, our organization offers a fun, grassroots approach to advancing the practice and profession of teaching. We directly address issues of teacher morale, performance, and retention by:
awarding creative and innovative ideas for instruction;
sharing free teacher-created and teacher-approved resources;
promoting a culture of spontaneous collaboration across grade levels, schools, and districts;
and providing a platform for teachers to make an even greater impact in their field.
