Who we serve

Our mission is to provide students with culturally relevant and responsive education and materials. Historically, African-Americans have struggled for educational equality and equity in the United States which includes being forced to attend segregated, underfunded, and overcrowded public schools.


Teaching it Trill strives to create Culturally Relevant curriculum and highly engaging professional developments in order to have a positive impact on the education experiences of black and brown students across America.









What we believe 


At Teaching it Trill, we believe:

  • That all students have the right to a high quality and equitable education.

  • That the role of race and racism is a factor in the Education system and most be eradicated. 

  • The all Educators must be Activists.
