1 Million Teachers offers reward-based training that transforms teachers into life-long learners. The incentives embedded in the training program will help keep teachers engaged and motivated – positively impacting the future of millions of children around the world. Without qualified and motivated teachers, children stand very little chance of realizing their potential, and there is a huge shortage of such teachers already. The global shortage of teachers is expected to reach 69 million by 2030 (according to UNESCO). Our goal for the next 3 years is to help attract, train and retain one million teachers as well as develop the capacity to significantly train several million more.
One Million Teachers will change children’s lives by delivering quality teacher training and providing incentives to keep teachers engaged. Come and join us and change the future for children, and society, around the world.

1. Free directories: directories are perfect for customers that are searching for a particular topic. What’s great about them is that you only have to post once and they are good for long periods of time. It saves a lot of your time when you don’t have to resubmit your information every week or every month. The bad news is most of your traffic won’t come from here. I still feel it is worth it to get your link out there. Just take one day and set it aside for posting to free directories. You won’t need to do it again for at least 6 months. 2. Classified Ads: Theseto check out your product or service. This is also an excellent way to get free links to

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step .... and then hustle + humble + hard work + failure + resilience + team work + persistence + just getting up and doing it. Shifting status quo. Challenging the norm. Changing one child's life one teacher at a time. 1 Million Teachers. No child left behind.
I am excited about the 1 Million Teachers project which is a bold move towards training our teachers out there who do not have access to best educational practices and methodology but they still have enough passion for charting a course in education.
