Welcome Teacher Advisory Council!

A Gift for Teaching is excited to announce the inaugural members of its Teacher Advisory Council. The Teacher Advisory Council is a diverse group of educators from Orange County public schools tasked with providing teacher-focused feedback, ideas, and direction for programs, events, and innovations.

A Gift for Teaching is committed to its vision of every child having the tools and experiences to succeed. This advisory council will act as true and honest voices from the classroom to the community, sharing first-hand insight into the ever-changing educational needs our students and teachers face. Members also serve as ambassadors to help educate eligible schools, colleagues, and first-year teachers about the free services and resources provided through A Gift For Teaching.

We look forward to strengthening our relationships to continue serving local teachers and our future leaders for the better.
