#‎TeachersMatter‬!

We are delighted to share this video tribute to teachers presented by the Varkey Foundation Global Teacher Prize, featuring Professor Stephen Hawking talking about being inspired by his St. Albans School math teacher Mr. Tatha, who he says “opened my eyes to the blueprint of the universe itself—mathematics.”

Here’s to all of the amazing teachers in the world who inspire us—and help us find our purpose!

Meet Jenna Leahy, Teacher Extraordinaire

Jenna Leahy surrounded by grade school children.

Here's a terrific success story from the team at Maricopa Matters about Jenna Leahy, who benefited from Rio Salado's Teacher Education program, which helped her become a co-founder of a local charter school. 

"Being able to work full time and take courses at my convenience really fit my personality. Getting my certificate while I was teaching allowed me to learn in real time."
