Mission Statement & Objective

A single teacher can change the course of a child’s life and impact their growth beyond measure. Empower Nevada Teachers is a grassroots movement whose main goal is to help empower Nevada teachers.

This is not simply a group, but a movement, to help bring about systemic changes in our public school system by fighting for Nevada teachers and their right to be listened to, respected, and treated like the professionals that they are.  In order to empower Nevada educators, we feel it is essential to build strong partnerships with the community and build a culture that values education and educators.  We must all stand together and demand the type of education system our communities deserve.

This group was started by current Washoe County School District teachers in support of all teachers and school staff in the state of Nevada.  This group is not affiliated with any union, organization, or political party. Our agenda is to help support teachers and school staff across the state of Nevada by building community and working to increase funding for K-12 education.

Teaching is the essential profession, the one that makes all professions possible.
