Navigate Your Teaching Career with TEACH Connecticut

We believe that there is no more important aspiration we can have as a people than the future success of our children, and that educators play a crucial role in the life of every child who enters their schools.

That's why the Talent Office at the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) and The Peter and Carmen Lucia Buck Foundation (The PCLB Foundation) launched TEACH Connecticut, in partnership with Connecticut school districts, educator preparation providers and TEACH.org

TEACH Connecticut is the first statewide initiative of its kind in the nation. We are committed to supporting anyone considering teaching in Connecticut and building the strongest-possible educator workforce to ensure that all students have access to great teachers. Learn more about the resources and support we're building for future teachers.

Shared Goals

Through TEACH Connecticut, the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) and TEACH.org are working together to help more people become certified, high-impact teachers in Connecticut. In doing so, together we aim to

  • elevate the image of the teaching profession,
  • expand and diversify the educator pipeline, and
  • fill persistent certification shortage areas

so that Connecticut students are prepared to succeed in lifelong learning and work beyond school.

  • TEACH.org

    Recognizing that great teachers are critical for our children's life outcomes and for the fate of the nation, several organizations formed TEACH.org to assist anyone who is considering becoming a teacher.

    TEACH.org is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, launched by Microsoft and the U.S. Department of Education, and is supported by the nation’s top teacher associations.

    The mission of TEACH.org is to enable people to explore teaching, decide whether it's for them, take the steps to become trained and certified, and set them up for success. TEACH.org has built some of the best apps and resources to help people determine whether teaching is a professional fit, to research and compare programs, and even to get a glimpse into what leading a classroom is like.

    Financial support for TEACH Connecticut is provided by the Peter & Carmen Lucia Buck Foundation (PCLB), a private family foundation that seeks to improve the quality of life in the communities it serves.
