As the summer break slowly comes to an end and we look toward a new school year, I am excited about the work Teach 313 has for the Detroit Community. My name is Tessa Scott and it is an honor and privilege to serve as the new Teach 313 Manager. As a former educator, I understand the wide range of feeling teachers experience at the beginning of a new school year. There is the excitement of decorating a classroom and the dread of no longer being able to sleep in, but what makes this time of year truly special is seeing the smiling faces of the students we serve. That is why Teach 313 is dedicated to making Detroit the best city for teachers and I am honored to lead this work. I look forward to engaging with you this upcoming school year. Thank you for the work you do inside and outside of the classroom. I stand with you and for you. Best wishes for a wonderful school year! Tessa Scott Teach 313 Manager
