Great Teachers
A new vision for supporting Oregon's educators

A great teacher changes a life. A whole state of them changes our future.

Teaching excellence in Oregon

On any given day, Oregon's educators work with nearly one million young Oregonians between the ages of three and 18. They touch nearly a third of our state's population every day, improving lives and building a better future. 

A great teacher engages, challenges, and inspires, and is the single most important in-school factor for student success.

Educators face unprecedented demands to achieve equitable outcomes for a diverse student population.

A new strategy

Oregon needs a new strategy on how we support educators. We need a new statewide infrastructure that empowers the teaching profession and lifts student outcomes. Senate Bill 182 will help build on the good work already done.
