Five Principles of a UNITE Teacher

A UNITE teacher…

I. Believes that all students regardless of race, ethnicity, or social-economic background, can achieve high academic standards and success upon high school graduation.

II. Empowers students to discover their potential and become leaders in their community by igniting curiosity and independent learning.

III. Sees each student's family and community as an asset, realizing that a school is only as strong as its parents and community.

IV. Exudes passion and dedication to urban teaching and urban teacher preparation.

V. Believes that a key component to solving the educational inequalities in urban schools and communities is with prepared and dedicated urban teachers who stay in the classroom well beyond the national attrition rate.


UNITE members and teachers are the cornerstone of the organization.

UNITE members are pre-service teachers on college campuses across the nation learning and analyzing the truths and realities about teaching in urban schools.

UNITE student teachers and teachers participate in a variety of programming to ensure their success in the classroom. From an urban student teaching placement to teaching during UNITE’s summer programs, UNITE teachers receive the experience and support to stay teaching beyond the national statistics  and make an invaluable impact on students at high needs schools.
