Reimagining the Teaching Job

Students deserve teachers who thrive in a job that is dynamic, rewarding, collaborative and sustainableespecially as we all work to recover from the learning, family and community losses of the past two years. But in an era of unparalleled innovation, the job of an American teacher remains stubbornly unchanged.

Reimagining the teaching job requires bold leadership and a willingness to challenge long-held assumptions about how people, time, and money are organized in our schools. It’s not an easy task—but it is possible. It will require broad buy-in, a restructuring of long-term costs, and a strategy for continuous improvement to make this vision a reality. By adopting a “Do Now, Build Toward” approach, leaders can address both school- and system-level structures and practices through doable starting points—and take meaningful steps in service of a truly reimagined teaching job.
