The Academy for Teachers raises respect for a noble and beleaguered profession by honoring and supporting exceptional teachers, the kind of teachers who change young lives. We bring them together with remarkable experts, intellectuals, and artists for inspiring master classes and other events that expand their knowledge and lift their spirits. Our programs, held in partnership with leading institutions, demonstrate that teachers deserve the support of our culture’s best and brightest.
 

Strong Teachers, Strong Students
