About To Educate All Children
TEACH aims to make Houston a model city for how teachers are trained to work with underserved students by helping to develop schools in the Houston Independent School District (HISD) that set the standard for classroom management and calm classroom cultures. TEACH’s mission is to provide educators with intensive training in de-escalation and conflict resolution to promote calmer and more productive classrooms, to decrease disciplinary referrals and to improve student achievement.
