It's an initiative designed for and led by public school teachers in Duval County.
The Jacksonville Public Education Fund’s Teacher Roundtable elevates the voices of Duval County’s best public school teachers while empowering them to help each other and educate the community about the importance of high-quality instruction in public education. Through this initiative, the teachers who participate in our existing programming efforts, especially the EDDY Awards teacher of the year recognition program, came together to further strengthen their capacity for advocating for high-quality public education.
Teachers have been part of the Teacher Roundtable Steering Committee and have emphasized how important it is to have an independent organization like The Jacksonville Public Education Fund spearheading this initiative.
Our goal is to elevate the voices of teachers
The goals of the Teacher Roundtable are to elevate the voices of teachers in community and district discussions about improving public education, support teachers in being their own advocates and connect teacher leaders to the community through speaking engagements and other opportunities.
