South Carolina’s educational challenges are deeply rooted. To help solve these challenges, our contribution is through leadership – finding, developing, supporting, and retaining teachers who will advance educational excellence and equity.
We provide intensive support to our teachers early in their careers. Teachers sign a two-year commitment when they join TFASC. Then, they receive ongoing training, coaching, and professional development from TFASC that enables them to improve student performance in the state’s most under-resourced school districts. After successfully completing their initial two-year commitment, many TFASC teachers stay in the classroom and make a career out of teaching. And those who don’t stay in the classroom still gain invaluable first-hand knowledge of what ails our education system and become lifelong advocates for systemic change.
