Nashville Teacher Cabinet
The Nashville Teacher Cabinet was created in order to serve as a voice for teachers in significant conversations in our city. The cabinet helps to inform decisions as they relate to our school system, but also the many other issues that impact students and teachers beyond classroom walls. The cabinet has: helped the district re- imagine professional development, helped look for ways to improve new teacher on-boarding and support, and helped to form ideas around teacher housing and community support for educators. Serving on the cabinet are teachers with diverse teaching experiences, including those working in elementary, middle, and high school levels, as well as teachers in zoned, magnet, and charter schools. Members also represent various points of professional careers.
Nashville Parent Cabinet
The Nashville Parent Cabinet represents a diverse group of MNPS parents who provide feedback on various education initiatives and strategies. Their authentic feedback assists in our efforts to improve schools and school experiences. The cabinet has: provided instrumental feedback to the Director of School's Transition Team, weighed in on what parent engagement should look like, and given input on the SchoolFinder website. Members represent a diverse mix of grade levels, neighborhoods, and types of schools.
Nashville Teacher Housing
A key part of the Mayor's housing priorities is housing for working professionals, like teachers. Launched in coordination with MNPS and Alignment Nashville, the Nashville Teacher Housing website is meant to be a place for educators to find housing options that they can afford, along with information, resources, and other special offers.
