Elevating Teachers

When teachers feel supported by the community they are more likely to feel satisfied in their work environments and are more likely to be effective in their practice. Public Education Partners brings the community together to elevate and celebrate the teaching profession. We believe that this homegrown, community-wide support network can make a critical difference in teacher well-being, teacher retention, and in the lives of students in Greenville County Schools.

Research has shown that nothing has a greater impact on student learning than the quality of the teacher in the classroom. Public Education Partners is working to keep the best and brightest teacher talent in Greenville County Schools.

Join us in lifting up our teachers as they prepare today’s students for tomorrow’s world. We are Elevating Teachers, investing in creating conditions to position Greenville as an ideal destination for teachers.


#Teach864 is a year-round campaign for the greater Greenville Community to show recognition and support for the teaching profession. We want our teachers to know their value to the community.
