Fund for Teachers strengthens instruction by investing in outstanding teachers' self-determined professional growth and development in order to support student success, enrich their own practice, and strengthen their schools and communities.
Fund for Teachers Fellows transform instruction and become a national corps of empowered and validated educators, sought after in their communities and nationally as leaders, innovators and change-makers:
- Who make learning relevant, meaningful and empowering for their students;
- Who inspire and lead professional growth of their colleagues;
- Who collaborate in sharing best practices, collective visioning, and solving shared problems;
- Whose input helps close the gap between sound policy and best practice.
