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!
The key to any innovation, and to successfully change a system, is sustainability. As MDTP grows we want our capacity to impact teacher compensation in creative ways to grow with us. The In Teachers We Trust Endowment Fund is our mechanism to, not only support innovative strategies to increase teacher compensation long-term, but to also offer emergency assistance to teachers experiencing hardships, offer scholarships to educators looking to further their education. provide field trip grants to teachers looking to take their students on educational outings and to offer basic needs assistance to families identified by teachers. Our ambitious goal with this fund is to create an education endowment in all 50 states in the U.S.
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.
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.
