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.

Our Vision

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.
