Tucson Values Teachers

Vision: Great Teachers. Successful Students. Prosperous Community. Mission: To inspire support of PreK-12 teachers in Southern Arizona through community collaborations that attract, retain, and celebrate teacher excellence.

Tucson Values Teachers (TVT) is a partnership of business leaders, educators and individuals with a shared mission to inspire support of PreK-12 teachers in Southern Arizona through community collaborations that attract, retain, and celebrate teacher excellence. We recognize the critical role teachers play in student achievement and the vital influence they have on the future of Tucson and our region. Through our work, we seek to raise public awareness of the value of the teaching profession and provide a range of programs to support teachers professionally and financially. We also leverage our partnerships with the Southern Arizona Leadership Council and other business and education groups to advocate for funding and policies that positively impact teachers, students and schools
