For Teachers

The Foundation works to spark a love of learning in all students, and we believe that excellent teachers ignite learning. Therefore, attracting, retaining and supporting excellent teachers and staff are major emphases of the Foundation. These Teachers First initiatives include:

A major event that supports these projects is the annual Teachers First Breakfast. Parents and community members can treat teachers, counselors, media specialists, administrators, specials teachers, teaching assistants, clerical and other staff to a wonderful breakfast and/or a rose. The breakfast is hosted by The Chapel Hill Restaurant Group, and proceeds go to the Teachers First Fund. The breakfast kicks off Teacher Appreciation Week each spring.
