System leaders in Texas know what the research tells us: high-quality teacher development is a key lever in increasing student achievement. Over the past two decades, NTC has partnered with Districts throughout Texas who are committed to providing high-quality teacher development.   

Our partnerships in Texas are focused on equipping coaches and teacher leaders to help teachers focus on lesson design, evidence of student learning, and creating an optimal learning environment for all students. This is ensuring that teachers have what they need to immediately and consistently teach for equitable outcomes.
