Building a Community of Educators

Teaching Trust trained leaders are changing the odds for children across Dallas-Fort Worth. 

My greatest joy has come with the epiphany that, as educators, we can truly give our scholars from the most challenging situations and depleted communities the schools they deserve. There is real palpable hope for the students who need us most.

Dallas is at a tipping point in its educational landscape with innovative changes in teacher evaluation systems and an increasingly diverse student population. As a student in the Aspiring Ed Leaders Program, I am confident that my development as a values-driven leader can help close the achievement gap so that we are one step closer to educational equity for our deserving students.
