Walgreens knows that teachers do so much more than just teach—they’re leaders, mentors and cheerleaders, empowering their students to be their best every single day and going above and beyond what fits into a simple job description. WE Teachers is a new program made possible by Walgreens that equips educators with the free resources and teacher training they need to help address critical social issues with their students. The program also offers the WE Teachers Award—a $500 Walgreens gift card for classroom supplies—that teachers can apply or be nominated for.
Dr. McCoy is a shining example of what it means to be more than a teacher. He’s been a WE Schools educator for over five years and has transformed education for thousands of students across eight schools. But he knows that to empower students, first you need to support their teachers—that’s why he’s excited to be the very first district to launch WE Teachers.
Teachers across America like Dr. Jacqueline Sanderlin, Leonela Garcia and Becky Stein go above and beyond to empower the next generation of leaders.
