A Chance to Showcase Your Favorite Teachers

We're raising awareness about PEF's mission: to transform public education so that all students succeed in learning and in life. One way we do that is by investing in our public school educators. The celebration dinner on September 5th will highlight the incredible work of these educators. Learn more about how to showcase your favorite teacher below.

We are collecting letters from students and community members to showcase the profound impact public school teachers have on our lives. Your letter can be a story of impact, a memorable moment, or a tribute to a teacher who has inspired, challenged, and shaped you. These letters will be showcased at PEF’s 35th Anniversary Celebration on Sept. 5th, 2024.
