Match Education
is an education reform non-profit organization in Boston comprised of...

Match Schools
Sposato Graduate School of Education
Match Beyond

Across all these endeavors we pursue outstanding results and search constantly for new approaches and new ideas. From trying, testing and trying again we have learned a great deal about teaching, training teachers and helping our students on their path to success.

We believe others can benefit from what we have learned so we are committed to sharing. This is where Match Minis come in. This website is one way that we try to export what we have uncovered over the years. Each Mini represents one piece of wisdom from our work, packaged up and shipped to you.

In a similar vein, Match Fishtank, our new open source curriculum site shares the standards-based K-12 curriculum we have developed for use in our schools.

We hope Match Minis and Match Fishtank can help teachers everywhere become a little better at what they do.

Sources of Inspiration

Ultimately, Match Minis are the result of 15 years of hard work by hundreds of individuals across the various branches of Match Education. It would take a ton of page space to acknowledge all of the passionate and dedicated educators who have contributed to our knowledge and core values.

In addition, we've gotten ideas from many outside sources. We do our best to list them all here.

Suffice it to say that when it comes to Minis, it takes a village. Thanks, village.
