We are committed to improving teaching conditions and elevating the educator voice to make our public schools even better and to make teaching a highly fulfilling career.
Besides parents, no one understands what’s best for students more than the professional educators who are with them every day. Educators need a seat at the table when decisions are made at the local, state and national levels that affect our classrooms, schools and profession.
Students deserve well-prepared teachers in every classroom. That doesn’t just include preparation in content knowledge and the art of teaching, but recognition that educators are also lifelong learners. Educators deserve access to high-quality professional development and other enriching experiences to continually improve their professional practice.
Advocating for student needs and improving educators’ professional conditions are interconnected. When educators are nurtured and supported, students do better as well.
