Core Value: Equity

Equity

“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.”

Maria Underwood

Evidence

“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.”

Innovation

 “As a coach in the Teacher Leadership Program, the micro-credentialing process helps me engage with teachers in ways traditional professional development models can’t allow. Through targeted modules, I am able to virtually-coach teachers from around the country through tasks that are directly linked to their development as instructional leaders.”

Perseverance

“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.”
