ExxonMobil has a longstanding commitment to supporting education worldwide. We believe great teachers are critical to student success, particularly in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, ExxonMobil thanks teachers across the country for their hard work and dedication - today and every day of the year.
Teachers are critical to the success of our students and future workforce, which is why ExxonMobil supports organizations that work directly with educators. Partners like the UTeach Institute, National Math and Science Initiative, Teach for America and 100Kin10 ensure that classroom teachers are well-prepared and able to help students develop the knowledge and skills to succeed in college and future careers.
The UTeach Institute is working to solve the need for more qualified math and science teachers. These teachers will impact the success and future of our students and the ability of our country to remain competitive.
Teach for America
Teach For America (TFA) and ExxonMobil share a vision of making access to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education widely available. Since TFA’s founding in 1990, ExxonMobil has supported TFA every year, helping them become the largest and most diverse provider of STEM teaching talent in the country. ExxonMobil has also fueled TFA’s efforts to strengthen the impact of its STEM teachers, especially in the communities of Houston and South Louisiana.
Teach for All
ExxonMobil launched a partnership with Teach For All in 2015. Our support has helped Teach For All expand its network to new countries and regions, deepen the impact of network teachers and alumni in the area of STEM education, and work toward our shared long-term vision to help more students fulfill their potential. The Teach For All global organization is also working to support the launch and growth of sustainable network partner organizations with the capacity to drive systemic, long-term progress in education on behalf of marginalized and underserved children the world over. Our support has directly helped six programs in Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Nigeria, Romania and Vietnam. As of 2018, the global network now exists in 48 countries.
Educate Texas is dedicated to improving the public education system so that every Texas student is prepared for success in school, in the workforce, and in life.
