The Vision of the Founders Teacher Initiative
The goal of the Founders Teacher Initiative is to create a renewed focus in our classrooms on the principles of self-government and the virtues required for a free society while developing future education leaders and advocates.
How we put our vision into action
At the Founders Teacher Initiative, we recruit, train, place and mentor principled, caring, and capable individuals in classrooms where they will provide quality academic instruction and encourage students to be insightful, responsible, and virtuous citizens necessary for a free society. In their second year, FTI teachers will have the opportunity to participate in leadership programs to prepare to take on greater responsibilities at their schools.
