We are excited to announce that Teach For America Nashville-Chattanooga continues to be a top-ranked Education Preparation Program by the Tennessee State Board of Education.
Our region is 1 of only 5 programs that scored two (2) “Exceeds Expectations” and one (1) “Meets Expectations” ratings across this year’s three scored performance categories. Once again, Teach For America Nashville-Chattanooga, Teach For America Memphis, and our region’s longtime partner Lipscomb University, all rank as the top 3 programs for high demand endorsement areas (hardest to staff subjects). This means our teachers are all serving in the highest needs classrooms across the state. Our region has ranked as one of the top educator preparation programs for five consecutive years. This report also affirms that Teach For America teachers are among the most racially and ethnically diverse in the state, and the organization has consistently been identified as a source of effective teachers and a top performer in Tennessee.
Data from the Teacher Educator Preparation report card is used to inform the region’s future programming and approach to developing excellent educators who support students in Tennessee. Thank you all for your commitment and dedication to our network of leaders, which drives the success of our region and the organization.
