NYC is home to over 1.1 million public school students with another 900,000 students within the classrooms of independent & religious schools. As expected, there is an enormous number of educators who work across the multiple tiers of schooling. This includes over 80,000 public school educators across the 5 boroughs. However, there is also a large number of educators across charter, religious and independent schooling, who rarely is afforded the opportunity to meet and connect with educators in varied space. Hence TNO’s goal is to create a unique bridge to help educators from all corners of each borough network with their peers.
In addition to various networking and professional development events, TNO also shares educational news – local, international and global; disseminates information about presentations and workshops for educators in NYC and produces a monthly emailed newsletter that provides teacher tips and strategies, events and more.
