Application for Teachers in M-DCPS

Attention Miami-Dade County Public School Teachers:  The Education Fund is now accepting applications  for Teach-A-Thon 2017!! 

Join us for this unique and exciting campaign, where bankers, lawyers, accountants, and professionals from all walks of life learn what it takes to be a teacher. Each of these Teacher Champions will then "step into the shoes" of a Miami-Dade County Public Schools' teacher to raise money and support for teachers.
                                                                                          SCROLL DOWN TO COMPLETE APPLICATION!

By participating in The Education Fund's Teach-A-Thon, your class and your profession benefit!  Here's how:

  • A business executive will teach for at least one hour in your classroom while you observe.
         -- Your students get to meet someone from another walk of life
         -- You get to show someone what it takes to be a teacher - this is NOT Career Day!
  • You develop a relationship with someone in the business community
         -- You'll communicate in advance - providing or vetting a lesson
         -- You'll meet at least the day when the business person teaches and hopefully at up to two events
  • Together we increase the public's knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of your profession.
         -- An additional/priority shopping day at our free classroom supplies warehouse!

         --  A discounted entry fee of $35 to our IDEA Expo on December 2!
         -- Money for your classroom (average stipend $200)!
