How WeAreTeachers Came to Be
WeAreTeachers was founded in 2007 by Sandy Fivecoat, a former teacher, administrator, researcher, policy director and executive coach. Sandy has always felt that teachers know their own students' needs and challenges best. That's why she wanted to put money directly into educators' hands. And that's how our extensive, community-based grant program was born.
Sandy also saw a need for a one-stop destination where educators could find all of the best resources in education in one place. And that's what WeAreTeachers aims to be today.
