About the initiative
Our schools require skilled, ingenious teachers to improve the world around us. That’s why we assembled the best and brightest in KC education to form TEACH Kansas City. Our partners include the region’s school districts, teacher preparation programs, and Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation (EMKF). Why?
Because we can’t do it alone. At TEACH.org, we’ve built some of the best apps and resources to determine whether teaching is a professional fit, to research and compare programs, and even to get a glimpse into what leading a classroom in different parts of the U.S. is like. But by joining forces with EMKF, we can take our services even further—to include support, professional development and career advancement opportunities via their KC Talent Strategy.
We support more people find a career that allows individuals to be bold, innovative and uncommon.
"At the Kauffman Foundation, we highlight the beliefs that Mr. Kauffman held dear, which include taking the uncommon path. Teachers are the best example of being uncommon as they think creatively, lead courageously and forge new opportunities for students to succeed. Through TEACH Kansas City, we can support more people find a career that allows individuals to be bold, innovative and uncommon." -Jacqueline Erickson Russell, Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation
