Mission Statement

#TeachersCan is a statewide movement supported by more than 125 partnering businesses and organizations committed to elevating the teaching profession and honoring the critical role teachers play in the success of Texas.

Those who can


Our teachers need to hear this now

They say those who can’t, teach. And they could not be more wrong. This saying has haunted us for far too long. But not anymore. It’s time for us to take it back, turn it into a positive, and use it as something we can all rally around. It’s time to celebrate the importance of public school teachers, and it’s time for us to own our impact.

Tuesday, Oct 5 is World Teachers’ Day!

We know #TeachersCan Light The Way Forward. Cities, organizations, and individuals throughout Texas are honoring teachers in various ways. You can too. Join the celebration!
