The professional, nonprofit and charitable 501(c)(3) organization, “Transforming Education and Changing History” (TEACH), was created by a group of local educators and business partners with the mission to transform the institution of education through training, protocols of best practice and resources that change the work of leadership, instruction and advisement. With involvement from elementary, secondary and post-secondary educational institutions, and in partnership with business and industry professionals, the TEACH organization will help transform the culture of education so that all students can identify and nurture their natural talents and graduate equipped with the skills necessary to contribute in a global society.
The TEACH Board Members have been providing support to school districts and campuses across the nation.
