Teach Plus Pennsylvania
Welcome to Teach Plus Pennsylvania! Our mission is to empower excellent, experienced, and diverse teachers to take leadership over key policy and practice issues that advance equity, opportunity, and student success.
Through our programs, teachers from across the state learn how policy is made and how it impacts their classroom. We provide teachers with training and opportunities to change and influence policies at the school, district, and state level—achieving change in schools and in the broader education system.

- Teach Plus PA’s instructional leadership work began in 2017 with the T3 program in the School District of Philadelphia, where T3 teacher leaders receive Teach Plus coaching and support to lead their grade teams and improve student outcomes. In the first three years, T3 partner schools improved faster than the district average and developed systems of shared leadership. Since 2017, Teach Plus’ instructional leadership work has expanded to support 25 schools across the School District of Philadelphia and Independence Mission Schools in Philadelphia.
- Teach Plus PA’s policy work began in 2020 with a Teacher Policy Advisory Board and expanded to the first full Teaching Policy Fellowship in 2021. Policy fellows learn about education policymaking and advocate for equitable policies in areas such as school funding, early childhood education, teacher diversity, and teacher preparation.
