RECOGNITION

Take a Teacher to Lunch

We bring fully catered lunches to schools so that teachers get the love they deserve! Partnerships with companies like Culinary Dropout, Panera, and Macayo’s allow us to bring these lunches to schools, engaging the business community in celebrating teachers.

Million Dollar Teacher

In partnership with Mix 96.9, we feature one extra-amazing teacher and highlight their achievements in a radio segment! Monthly, our One In a Million Teacher speaks with Matthew Blades on air, gets a 1-hour massage courtesy of Massage Envy and a 4-person party at Peter Piper Pizza!

COMPENSATION

Endowment

The key to any innovation and to successful change in a system is sustainability.  As MDTP grows we want our capacity to help schools pay teachers more money to grow with us.  The In Teachers We Trust Endowment Fund is our mechanism to support innovative strategies to increase teacher compensation long-term.  Our ambitious goal with this fund is to create an education endowment in all 50 states in the U.S.

SUPPORT

Classroom Support Team

MDTP leverages partnerships to place talented individuals in classrooms to lighten the load on educators. The team includes a technology specialist, student teacher, teaching assistant, and parent engagement specialist, successfully improving teacher morale and student performance.

Million Dollar Teacher Tree

We take multiple approaches in creating pathways for the community to be involved in getting teachers the extra support they need to accomplish the goals they have in helping students achieve success in the classroom. We allow teachers to dream BIG (because that is the example we want them to set for their students) and create a list of things for which they need support, and we share this list with our supporters.

Upcoming Programs

Teacher League
The Teacher League App will be an innovative platform designed to create new revenue streams for educators and our initiatives. Teachers will be able to upload videos of their best lesson for competitions. Income from advertising will fund prizes for teachers and go towards an endowment fund for schools to put towards teacher salaries. 

Teacher Appreciation Package (T.A.P.)
Businesses will offer significant discounts and deals to teachers when they present their T.A.P. card. Businesses receive more traffic and teachers know what businesses care.
