Founder, Kimberly Lasher Mitchell

Kimberly started Inquiry Partners with partners Erin Collins Gustafson and Amy Satin Spinelli in 2013. Since that time, the organization has expanded to include additional consultants and advisors. These advisors include dozens of undergraduate students from various majors at the University of Washington, where Kimberly currently teaches several courses in the College of Education. Kimberly is a former IB principal, Senior Program Officer at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Director at Teach for All, and a frequent speaker and presenter on inquiry-based instruction. She is a 1996 graduate of Stanford University's Education Administration and Policy program. Her book, Experience Inquiry, will be published by Corwin Press next year (2018).
