Smiling Black Teacher Instructing Student on Coursework in Classroom

Celebrating Black Teachers

leaving a legacy, shaping the future

We thank you for your unrelenting service to our children, families, and communities. We recognize that, in our country, the duty of being a P-12 educator goes unrecognized, underfunded, and unappreciated.

We humbly recognize the work of teachers, administrators, teacher educators, and other educational personnel in creating safe spaces for our students to thrive. We also applaud those who strive to ensure compassionate, rigorous, and truthful spaces in education so that our students receive the most comprehensive instruction possible.
