Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

May 2- May 6

Thank You!

As a fellow teacher, thank you for the work that you do to elevate our profession. As your colleague, thank you for continually pushing me to become a better educator. As a Hope Street Group Fellow thank you for participating in our surveys and focus groups. Our work with legislators this spring was incredible and your voice was heard on SB1, KTRS and more. Please let me know if you're interested in working with legislators this summer to build relationships and continue our efforts to increase teacher voice in policy making.
