ABOUT MISSION 100%

Mission 100% is an online video library and platform, with over 2,000 short, targeted observation clips from real classrooms that highlight best teaching practices. We believe that practice based teacher development is the most efficient and effective way to develop great teachers, but relies on clear exemplars to calibrate the bar high, and provide teachers with clear desired outcomes.


We also love partnering with schools and networks to begin building their own libraries. Please contact us for more information!

What 100% Means to Me

What Do We Do

Film Incredible Teachers & Schools.

We define ‘incredible’ by the results teachers get from their students. Consistently. We are then able to analyze actions and mindsets that lead to these results.


We find and capture these teachers by partnering with schools, networks and districts who are eager to codify best practices internally.

Highlight Strategies & Best Practices.

Next we take all this raw footage and spend days and weeks watching, analyzing and editing it down into short (1-3 minute) video clips.


When partnering with schools and networks this saves them a lot of hard work, while also allowing us to build a diverse library of teachers from across the country.

Replicate Awesome.

Clips are then organized and tagged on our platform, built for easy communication, collaboration, and organization. We believe this is a crucial part of using video in teaching training, making it easy to implement into current coaching practices.

Framework For 100%

Our Framework is how we communicate around the best practices we see both in classrooms and in our footage. We did not create many of these terms, as brilliant educators have been collectively developing this language for many years. We also recognize that many schools and networks have developed their own frameworks, which can be used on Mission 100% to tag and organize any videos uploaded within your network.


You can find a full Framework for browsing inside the Mission 100% library. Check it out.

John Saphier's Key Messages

Dec 5, 2016

Janice Smith

John Saphier writes in 'The Skillful Teacher' about the key messages we should be sending our students through both our words and actions.  We blogged about this back in 2014 ('It All Begins With What We Believe), but now we've followed up on this post with a new Collection (called 'Key Messages') in the Video Library, showing this in action.

We're On The Same Team

Nov 14, 2016

The summer between my first and second year of teaching I decided to adopt a puppy.  I spent all summer training him, and the following fall taking him to Beginner and Intermediate puppy training classes once a week.  And I'll never forget the first time someone commented on his poor behavior to me.  I immediately found myself getting defensive, and wanting to point out how hard I was working on his training, and all the good things he was able to do, and that this was just ONE mistake amidst all the things he was quickly getting good at.  Plus, the person

Getting 100%

Nov 7, 2016

Janice Smith

We talk (and have posted) a lot about 100% here at Mission 100%.  Probably not a huge surprise.  We talk about it in terms of students meeting expectations, student mastery, teacher mindset... the list goes on. Today we've selected another short clip highlighting two examples of a teacher using small moves to get 100% of her students meeting her expectations quickly.  Kristine Gear is a teacher at KIPP Austin College Prep (which makes now probably a good time to tell you we've just released a new batch of KIPP Austin videos over in the Mission 100% video library!), and the class
