About Teach 313

A City for Educators

Detroit is in the middle of a resurgence, yet Detroit can’t be great without great education. At the heart of great education is great educators. We must make Detroit the best city in America for teachers. We need you in Detroit, we support you in Detroit—we celebrate you because you Teach 313! We believe it is our duty to make Detroit the best city in America for teachers. Teach 313 will move the needle by focusing on the recruitment, quality of life, and retention of teachers in Detroit.

Our Initiative Focus

How do we plan to make Detroit a great place to teach? By ensuring a high quality of life for every Detroit educator. This includes creating a central hub for resources, incentives, and career opportunities with our online platform and app. We will take some of the guesswork and searching out of having a thriving career in Detroit. Teach 313 will also encourage the business community to get engaged and create unique offerings to help lower the cost of living for our teaching professionals.

The Plan

We will convene and create professional development opportunities and events as well to foster community across districts and provide on-going support for the educators as individuals. Teach 313 will focus on creating an ecosystem that supports the personal development and quality of life for our educators at an individual level. As we empower our champions, we expect to see a real systemic change for our youth, in our communities, and in our city.
