Who We Are TNTP is a national nonprofit founded by teachers that believes our nation’s public schools can offer all children an excellent education.

We work at every level of the public education system to attract and train talented teachers and school leaders, ensure rigorous and engaging classrooms, and create environments that prioritize great teaching and accelerate student learning.
TNTP is currently expanding our work into academic strategy to build stronger classrooms for more kids, faster. While strong human capital policies and practices are necessary to build and maintain excellent schools, we know that in order to ensure students are really learning, districts must have a clear academic vision, the ability to translate that vision to schools, and, most importantly, know how to improve the quality of instruction offered to kids. TNTP is helping schools, districts and states to establish policies and practices that prioritize and support effective teaching, every day.
English Language Learners are one of the fastest growing populations nationwide and will continue to be a vulnerable subgroup that requires unique and targeted support. Supporting CMOs, networks, districts, school leaders and teachers that serve English Language Learners is a new practice area for TNTP. We are in the early stages of developing and refining our academic strategy approach for English Language Learners, and the person in this role will bring their experience and expertise to bear to help schools improve the quality of instruction for English Language Learners.
