Our teachers are the backbone of our movement

Teachers work with school leaders and families to provide the support students need to be successful. We cultivate strong family involvement through home visits, frequent communication, and an open-door policy for parents.

We provide teachers with the resources to excel in their fields. With technology in classrooms, a KIPP-provided laptop, and a stipend to purchase classroom supplies, you also have the resources you need to support your scholars.
