Cohort 1 (2018-2019)
WHY DO WE TEACH?
Why teach in Detroit? A teacher isn’t the type of person that sits idly by and thinks “I wish someone would do something about that.” Nah… A teacher is the person that gets involved. Teachers find creative solutions. They inspire the children. They help the elders. A teacher is compelled to do -- compelled to make a change.
Detroit has survived because of people like this. People that support hardworking dreamers. People that thrive on change. We're a city that believes that hustle equals value. This is a close-knit, big city. Just big enough to find yourself, while getting lost in your passion. We’re a city of dreamers, do-ers, and go-getters.
And that’s what makes Detroit the perfect place to create the best city in America for teachers!
We know that we can never be truly great without the support of incredible educators, and we can never have great educators without incredible amounts of support. As we start a new chapter in Detroit’s history, we need professionals from all over the country to take up this mission. Detroit needs change-makers that understand that the future is in the hands of our young people and no one understands this more than educators.
This is why YOU should Teach 313. Teach in Detroit and change the world.
