Support the 'Take a Look at Teaching' Initiative

Take a Look at Teaching is a union-led initiative with four goals:

  • Elevating the teaching profession by having meaningful conversations about becoming a teacher and instructional practice
  • Improving diversity in the education workforce
  • Increasing the number of students and career changers entering the teaching field
  • Expanding P-12/higher education partnerships to enhance teacher recruitment and support new teachers
