Mission and Vision
Mission: NNSTOY, an organization of teacher leaders, seeks to transform the teaching profession by using our credible voice to support policies and practices that advance teacher leadership, educator effectiveness, and the conditions, capacity, and culture necessary to support great teaching and learning for all students.
Vision: NNSTOY envisions a transformed teaching profession that provides access to great teaching and learning for all students thereby dramatically improving student outcomes for college, career, and life.
Theory of Change: When we advance teacher leadership to transform the profession and promote the conditions, capacity, and culture needed to foster great teaching and learning for all students, then greater numbers of talented individuals will enter, remain, and impact the profession, access to effective educators and great teaching and learning will increase, and student outcomes for college, career, and life will dramatically improve.
- Advance teacher leadership both in the field and by focusing policy at all levels on putting great teaching and learning at the center of the education debate, and creating the kind of profession that attracts, develops, retains, leverages, advances, and values top talent.
- Ensure that college and career ready education reforms promote the conditions, capacity, and culture needed to advance teacher leadership, improve educator effectiveness, and increase access to great teaching and learning for all students.
- Strengthen NNSTOY’s capacity and position to increase the cadre of teacher leaders, advance teacher leadership and educator effectiveness, and transform the teaching profession.
