As you may have heard, the Texas Retired Teachers Foundation (TRTF) is launching a new program! Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA) Executive Director Tim Lee shared the great news about a program we believe will return hope to our school children and their parents, active educators, and retired teachers!

TRTF is excited to announce the TRTF Tutor Program powered by Knack, an online service that will match retired Texas public-school teachers with students and their families, as well as school districts that need tutoring services and educational support.

This wonderful new program provides TRTA members with an avenue to give back to their communities, while also allowing them to earn extra income. In addition, the TRTF Tutor Program provides the critical help many of our students and practicing educators need to navigate the challenges of virtual learning.

We believe the greatest teachers are those in our public-school classrooms as well as those who served in our schools throughout their career: that means you, retired teachers! Students will receive not only excellent educational support but will engage on a multi-generational level that improves interpersonal skills when they receive tutoring services from a Texas retired teacher.

TRTF has an ambitious goal of signing up 1,000 tutors by November 16! We know our dedicated TRTA members can surpass this goal and make the TRTF Tutor Program the greatest tutoring service available!
