Your Guide to the Teaching Profession
TeachDFW.org’s mission is to enable you to explore teaching, decide whether it is for you, take the steps to become trained and certified, and set you up for success.


Because great teachers are essential for our region’s prosperity and our students’ life outcomes, Dallas-Fort Worth area school districts and teacher preparation programs launched TeachDFW.org, with the Best in Class Coalition and TEACH, in order to assist anyone considering teaching in the Dallas-Fort Worth region. 

Best in Class is a coalition made up of organizations across Dallas-Fort Worth that are committed to attracting, preparing, developing, and retaining excellent teachers and school leaders for every child. The coalition is supported by backbone staff at The Commit Partnership and Communities Foundation of Texas.

TEACH is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, launched by Microsoft and the U.S. Department of Education, and supported by the nation’s top teacher associations.
