Education is Our Responsibility

"The responsibility for educating a young person is not the student's responsibility alone, nor is it the job of the teacher alone, nor is it the obligation of the parents alone. It is a responsibility that belongs to all of us. Because we all reap the benefits when our citizens are well educated." —Dr. Jill Biden

The Future Depends On Teachers

Teachers are experiencing a hero moment right now. Despite the severe challenges that COVID-19 has thrust upon educators and our school system, we have an opportunity: Remote learning has shown how difficult it is to teach and has fostered a deeper appreciation for teachers among parents, students and the public. Teachers are heroes. They are essential workers. They are integral to our nation’s recovery. They are innovating to adapt to our new reality, and are crucial to developing the next generation, who will prepare for future health crises and achieve social justice in our world.

“The Future Depends on Teachers” celebrates the role teachers play in shaping our students and our future and invites people to join a career that leaves a legacy they can be proud of.

TEACH Connecticut is the first statewide initiative of its kind in the nation. We are committed to supporting anyone considering teaching in Connecticut and building the strongest educator workforce possible to ensure all students have access to great teachers.

Recognizing that great teachers are critical for our children's life outcomes, several organizations formed TEACH to assist anyone who is considering becoming a teacher. TEACH Connecticut was made possible through a partnership between TEACH, the Connecticut State Department of Education (CDSE) and Connecticut schools, districts and educator preparation programs.

TEACH is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, launched by Microsoft and the U.S. Department of Education, and is supported by the nation’s top teacher associations.
