Great teachers inspire. Care about every student. Empower learning.
Teaching is the most important school-based factor influencing student performance and lifelong outcomes. Yet in Washington, too many students—especially those most at-risk—lack access to highly-skilled, passionate and culturally-responsive teaching. Why? Too many would-be teachers are deterred by the prospect of taking on heavy debt, while a lack of professional support contributes to high turnover. So we don’t just need teachers. We need teachers who are well-prepared and supported, who are passionate learners, and who reflect our diverse communities.
