The purpose of the project is to reframe the way teachers are talked about and understood in the media. With an eye to that end, we plan to create an outdoor exhibit of larger-than-life teacher portraits and belief statements. Our hope is that this project will get people talking about ways we might better support and honor the work that teachers do. We understand these are ambitious goals, but we also believe this is an important moment for teachers. In our view, there's a real need to remind others of the import role that teachers play in both schools and communities.
