Touchdown For Teachers


On a sunny Saturday at Southern Methodist University, Communities Foundation of Texas and The Commit Partnership scored a touchdown for teachers by announcing the official launch of Best in Class. This coalition of 50 different organizations focuses on ensuring all students in North Texas have access to well-prepared, effective and diverse educators.

In honor of North Texas teachers, a tailgating party with food, drinks and entertainment took place before the football game near the Southern Methodist University Boulevard. Teachers are the #1 in-school factor that influences student achievement, and school leaders are a close second. They bring to life the promise of education for individual students, their families, and communities, and help to create a vibrant workforce and a thriving Texas economy. Teachers and leaders matter, and we are proud to celebrate and support them through this work.
