How does Nashville show its love to its public school teachers? It lights up the city red and pink and launches the largest educator discount program in the Southeast!
Through its second annual Show Your Love for Teachers campaign, the Nashville Public Education Foundation, joined by the Mayor’s Office and Metro Nashville Public Schools, announced today that more than 140 businesses are now providing discounts as part of this citywide effort to recognize and reward Nashville’s 6,800 public school educators. This marks a sevenfold increase from 2016’s participation.
“There is nothing more important to helping our schools succeed than recruiting, retaining and supporting great teachers,” said Dr. Shawn Joseph, director of schools. “At MNPS, we want to show our support for educators in a very intentional way, and our amazing teachers must feel valued by the community. Our new strategic plan is focused on efforts designed to strengthen and improve our schools. But, the heart and soul of Nashville’s ability to succeed in becoming the fastest-improving district in the country rests with keeping and growing the nation’s best teacher workforce.”
