About the National Teachers Initiative

This 18-month Initiative celebrated the work of public school teachers across the country.

By recording, sharing, and preserving these stories, we called attention to the invaluable contributions teachers have made to this nation, honored those who have embraced the profession as their calling, encouraged teaching as a career choice, and helped to unify the country behind its teachers.
