Our Mission

The mission of Teach Plus is to empower excellent, experienced, and diverse teachers to take leadership over key policy and practice issues that affect their students’ success. Since 2009, Teach Plus has developed thousands of teacher leaders across the country to exercise their leadership in shaping education policy and improving teaching and learning to create an education system driven by access and excellence for all.

What We Do

At Teach Plus, we advance teacher leadership in pursuit of opportunities and outcomes for students. When we invest in developing our most talented teachers into teacher leaders who are well-informed, persuasive, and prepared to lead, they have deep leverage in advancing equity for students, especially for students of color, low-income students, and those from underserved communities. To close the opportunity gap and to ensure equitable access to a world-class education for all students in the schools and communities we serve, we ignite systems change at multiple levels through our Policy Fellowship and Instructional Leadership programs designed to inspire and equip teachers. We are committed to leading change in our Equity Focus Areas: High-quality early childhood education; Recruitment and retention of a diverse teaching force; Rigorous curricula, high standards, and meaningful accountability; Teacher preparation, development, and leadership; Whole child, student-centered learning; and Equitable Funding.
