We are here to support you, teachers! Our programs and support extend to all PreK-12 teachers in Southern Arizona, including those who teach in district, charter and private schools.

Teacher Excellence Awards

Tucson Values Teachers shines a spotlight on individual teachers who bring that extra something special into the classroom. Please let us know about a teacher that you believe deserves special recognition, one who goes above and beyond in the classroom each and every day. Send us your nomination for a PreK-12 teacher who works in Southern Arizona. Each month, we will select one teacher who will receive the award, a $100 gift card to Office Depot/OfficeMax, $250 cash courtesy of Helios Education Foundation, and a festive presentation arranged by Tucson Values Teachers.

Teachers in Industry

Teachers in Industry
Teachers in Industry is the innovative business-education partnership that places experienced classroom teachers in the business workforce during the summer. Teachers earn industry wages, earn credits for a Master’s degree or professional development, and take their real-world industry experience back to their classrooms to more effectively prepare students for the future.
