Nearly half of all individuals who begin a career in teaching leave the profession within the first five years. This turnover rate costs the nation more than $7 billion dollars each year.

In times of shortages, it is most common to focus attention on how to get more teachers into the profession. However, it is equally important to focus on how to keep the teachers we have in the classroom.

A simple solution
By consistently rewarding teachers through businesses in their own communities, teachers feel valued and empowered, and communities thrive.
At here4teachers, that's our goal and our mission.
What we do
We strive to let every teacher in our adopted schools know they are valued. Each month, they discover just how valued they are.
Why We Do It
Everything in a school begins with the teacher. If great teachers leave the profession, students are negatively impacted and so are communities.
How We Do It
Communities thrive when students succeed. Great teachers help students succeed and should be valued. This is where you come in.
