Who We Are
TNTP is a national nonprofit founded by teachers that believes our nation’s public schools can offer all children an excellent education. Today we’re a diverse team from a wide range of fields, united by a fierce commitment to helping school systems end educational inequality and achieve their goals for students. We work at every level of the public education system to attract and train talented teachers and school leaders, ensure rigorous and engaging classrooms, and create environments that prioritize great teaching and accelerate student learning.
Staff on TNTP's Client Team work alongside teachers, school leaders, districts and states to help them achieve their goals for students. In West Texas, we are partnering with Texas Education Service Center Region 18 (ESC 18) to enhance and expand a cutting-edge teacher preparation program aimed at increasing the number of diverse and highly effective teachers for students in high-need schools. We will support ESC 18 in operating a rigorous alternative certification program that will meet the needs of its most challenged schools and to grow a quality workforce by implementing systems and policies that attract, develop, and retain the best teachers across the district.
What You’ll Do
