About Us

Overview of Teach Plus

Mission. The mission of Teach Plus is to improve the achievement of urban children by ensuring that a greater proportion of students have access to excellent, experienced teachers. Half of new teachers leave urban classrooms within three years, just as they are beginning to have the strongest impact on student learning. We give effective teachers a reason to stay.

Programs. Teach Plus runs three programs designed to place teacher leaders at the center of reform. These programs include: the Teaching Policy Fellows Program, C2: the Core Collaborative, and T3: Turnaround Teacher Teams. Our programs focus on demonstrably effective teachers in the second stage of their careers (in most cases, years 3 through 10) who want to continue classroom teaching, while also expanding their impact as leaders in their schools and in state and district policy.

 Impact. Teach Plus has a track record of ensuring that teacher advocacy results in innovation in schools and districts. Our work has led to:

●     Improvements to local teachers’ contracts;
●     New programming to increase high-need students’ access to strong teachers;
●     Nationally significant, teacher-led reports; and
●     Greater media attention to the voice of the incoming generation of teachers.
