From our coaches working directly with educators in the classroom to our leadership team, we are united by our belief in a better education system where every teacher and student is encouraged and supported to thrive. Each of our team members brings their own unique set of experiences and expertise that help to shape Teaching Matters—but we all hold the following values close to the heart as a way to guide our daily work.
“Working in an organization that puts educational equity at the forefront is of utmost importance to me. I know firsthand the obstacles placed on and the marginalization of children of color that occurs in education. Teaching Matters works to counter these obstacles for children in public schools throughout New York City and nationally.”
“Working for Teaching Matters as an Early Reading Matters Coach is so exciting! Rooted in research and grounded in the realities of practices, I am able to make meaningful change that is evidence-based. As both an educator and researcher, I love how research informs my practice, and in turn, supports early literacy instruction.”
“I love working for Teaching Matters because of the strong collaboration with my co-workers and the diversity of projects we work on. My colleagues are brilliant, like-minded individuals who I enjoy collaborating with to affect school change and move schools forward.”
“The best thing about this job is the large-scale impact you can have. If you can change a teacher’s practice; you affect every student that teacher has, now and for years to come. If you can change a school’s practice, you potentially improve the education of every child to enter that building for a generation.”
—Dr. Bill Heller
