We Believe In A Future Where Every Michigan Child Is Taught By A High-Impact Educator

1:00 Why Teach?

High-impact educators are among the biggest “difference makers” when it comes to a student having an equitable education and growing into capable, confident and healthy adults. The problem is that educators are leaving the profession at alarming rates and there are not enough incentives for them to stay.

Our education system is in the bottom 10 states for 4th grade reading. Michigan’s population is declining and our economic future is in jeopardy. We can turn this around and give our children the future they deserve. Let’s start by making Michigan the best place in the country to be an educator.

A high-impact educator changes the life trajectory of the students they support. They not only impact their students, they also lift up, inspire, and support the educators around them and work collaboratively with families and the community.

Right now, the teaching profession is not set up to attract and retain high-impact educators. Together, we can change this.
