Our mission is to raise the status of the teaching profession and provide resources to the education community. Using a national campaign and related initiatives TeachersCount is working to create a permanent culture of teacher appreciation in the United States. If you're a teacher, if you want to be a teacher, or if you want to help teachers, this is the site for you.
Our award-winning "Behind Every Famous Person is a Fabulous Teacher" campaign features celebrities and their favorite teachers. To date nearly 50 pairings have been made. Ads have appeared in Time, Sports Illustrated, People, O, and Country Weekly.
The blog topic for October is DPE Survey on Public Education. Democrats for Public Education (DPE) recently released the results of a national voter survey that shows voters back public education in large numbers and roughly 2/3 of Americans agree with traditionally Democratic positions when it comes to education. Please share your thoughts on these results.
TeachersTopic features an education expert who discusses a topic of interest to the teaching community. Some of our past editions have addressed 21st century learning, teacher evaluation and assessment, and professional development. TeachersCount invites you to read our current TeachersTopic and browse through past editions.
