Thanks to our Sponsor: Teach Plus

We’re grateful to have Teach Plus as one of our sponsors. Teach Plus has been generous enough to offer a variety of resources for our goody-bags.

The mission of Teach Plus is to improve outcomes for urban children by ensuring that a greater proportion of students have access to effective, experienced teachers.  It is founded on the premise that teachers want to learn and grow in the profession, and want to ensure that their development results in increased learning among their students. In order for schools to continuously improve student achievement, teaching must become a career that motivates and rewards continuous improvement among practitioners.

The Washington DC chapter of Teach Plus is sponsoring a teacher-led, teacher-driven Common Core Conference this May called Cutting to the Core.

Consider applying for the Teach Plus T3 Initiative is an innovative program that recruits, develops, and supports effective, experienced teachers to serve in low-performing schools. This program was designed by teachers to address the problem of inequitable access to effective teachers in the highest need schools.

The T3 Initiative:

  • creates cohorts of highly effective and experienced teachers
  • supports them in becoming turnaround specialists with the help of an embedded T3 coach
  • places them in teams in the schools in which they are most needed
