What We Do

We develop teachers as leaders and empower them to take action.

Through our programs, we grow teachers’ expertise to break down barriers in the areas of equity ripe for change.

Our Mission and Student Opportunity Mandate
The mission of Teach Plus is to empower excellent, experienced, and diverse teachers to take leadership over key policy and practice issues that advance equity, opportunity, and student success.

Teach Plus in 2025

We believe in equity-driven teacher leadership. Our growth strategy is driven by an advocacy agenda for collective impact.

Equity Focus Areas

We work to break down barriers in core Equity Focus Areas─all of which have been more important than ever during the COVID pandemic.

How We Grow Teacher Leaders

We empower teacher leaders as change agents, from shaping professional learning in their schools to advocating with policy makers in their Statehouse.
