Today is #GivingTuesday, a global day to give back to nonprofit organizations that make a difference in our communities.
We know that right about now, your inbox is as stuffed as a Turducken with a half dozen hashtags: #ThanksgivingSale, #BlackFriday, #SmallBusinessSaturday #CyberMonday, and now we are coming to you with one more.
We've had an outstanding year, what with the return of our annual Leading Educators Institute, the implementation of our LEAP program in all 115 District of Columbia public schools, and our being selected by the U.S. Department of Education for an Investing in Innovation (i3) grant to bring our teacher leadership model to the Chicago area over the next four years. But still, we thought we’d push our luck.
Leading Educators is heading a national teacher leadership movement that helps teachers develop the skills and knowledge needed to improve instruction, transform school culture, and increase student achievement. Your donation here will help us provide promising teachers who work in some of the country’s highest-need schools with the professional learning opportunities proven to increase classroom performance and move us closer to the goal that drives our every action: Great schools for all students.
Thank you for your support on behalf of the 814 teachers in our Fellowship, the 6,500 teaching colleagues that they support, and most importantly, the more than 180,000 students they serve every day.
