I firmly believe that all students deserve access to excellent teachers, and Public Impact does this by extending the reach of excellent teachers and developing future teacher-leaders through Opportunity Culture career paths. As a former Opportunity Culture team teacher, I have experienced the impact of a multi-classroom leader and witnessed the dramatic results of this support in my own classroom. All teachers should have access to this support and be provided with the opportunity to advance within in their profession!”
