Community Support for Teachers

In 2008, a new community organization, Tucson Values Teachers (TVT) was formed in order to lend support to K-12 teachers, and to improve the performance of the region’s schools by attracting and retaining high quality and dedicated teachers. In addition to honoring a Southern Arizona teacher with a Teacher Excellence Award, TVT has also developed a resource oriented program, Tuscon Supplies Teachers to collect donated classroom supplies to the region’s teachers. The value of the donated supplies has exceeded $100,000 since its beginning in 2009, when the total reached $21,000. You can learn more about this exemplary program by visiting their website here.
