TeachOakland Advisory Group
Educate78’s TeachOakland Advisory Group is founded on the belief that our educators know best what will have a meaningful impact on their effectiveness, fulfillment, and retention in Oakland. The TeachOakland Advisory Group will identify opportunities to generate innovative solutions that lift up the profession and empower Oakland teachers and students.
The members of the TeachOakland Advisory Group are stellar Oakland educators representing the rich diversity of the city. They come from various areas of Oakland, teach across grade levels, and are at varying stages of their careers. They are change-makers, committed to ensuring all Oakland children get the education they deserve.
Educate78 believes in Oakland’s phenomenal teachers who go above-and-beyond everyday to enable Oakland students to achieve their potential regardless of address or means. We want teachers like these to feel supported, valued, and celebrated for the life-changing work they do to develop the minds and hearts of our next generation of leaders.
