Three teachers, frustrated by feeling left out and underrepresented by their union and educational organizations, came up with an idea: why not create their own non-profit organization for teachers, by teachers with a mission of supporting the teacher as an individual practitioner and innovator of best educational practices. Innovative Teachers of Texas was born.
Founded in 2019, Innovative Teachers of Texas (ITT) was created to provide an alternative in Professional Liability Insurance for teachers without funding a liberal agenda. ITT will be an incubator for establishing new state chapters and act as a clearinghouse for best practices for state chapters to help promote their organizations amongst the nation’s educators. ITT will consist of forward-thinking professionals who want policies in place that allow, and encourage, excellence in education and professionalism in the classroom.
