Teaching Channel was founded on the belief that giving educators a chance to see and reflect on classroom practice in action would have a profound impact on the profession.
You, the million-strong Teaching Channel community, have borne out that vision. You come to our website and watch our videos to learn from one another, to add to your teacher toolkit, to engage in meaningful inquiry using our Teams platform, and to share concrete ideas via our blog.
We at Teaching Channel have been humbled by your sustained and ever-growing support of our mission.
Now, to keep Teaching Channel thriving and producing the kind of content you find so valuable over the long-term, our Board of Directors, after careful consideration regarding the sustainability of our mission, has made the decision for Teaching Channel to become a for-profit company.

Today, the 1,000,000th teacher registered to be a member of our amazing Teaching Channel community. This is no small feat — and this remarkable moment warrants celebration.
As we ring in the new year, let me take this opportunity to introduce myself and to share some wonderful news.
First, the news: Teaching Channel – that is to say, you, the vibrant community of teachers, coaches, mentors, and educators of all stripes that comprises Tch — just topped the 800,000-member milestone and continues to grow each day!
This number represents to me not just the individuals across the country and around the world who call Teaching Channel a professional home. It also represents a validation of our mission to open classroom doors, through high-quality video, so that teachers can share practice, inspire and learn from one another, and, in the end, get better together.
