We have been working together for the past 13 years. The majority of us are classroom teachers, working in public schools in the San Francisco Bay Area, who do this work beyond our work day. However our members include community based educators, private school educators, principals, administrators and parents. T4SJ is a volunteer-based organizations. We receive a majority of our funding from the individual donations from ourselves, fellow educators and folks that want to support our work. We generally don’t receive money from foundations to do our work. We focus on building our organization by building our educator volunteer base.

Join us!
If you want to join us and you live in the area, come to one of our general meetings or any of the events to get plugged in and connect!  See when the next meeting is under Events.
