Public Consulting Group LLC, a provider of solutions implementation and operations improvement services to the public sector, has purchased the TeachersConnect educator social network and its Grab and Grow learning community from Great Teachers Inc. The network allows teachers to ask questions, validate concerns, and share ideas and resources.
David Meyers, TeachersConnect founder, said, “We’re on a mission to make sure every teacher gets a dream job, and every student gets a dream teacher. The best way to turn that calling into reality is by giving every teacher a handpicked dream team of colleagues and mentors. It’s clear that our new PCG colleagues share that vision. The creativity, credibility, and reach of PCG make this a uniquely powerful union, and our team can’t wait to get started on breaking down the barriers to equity and excellence in teaching and learning.”
Jim Popp, PCG manager and president of University Instructors LLC, a PCG company, said, “David shares our vision and goal to help solve the teacher shortage crisis and improve diversity within the teaching profession. Together, we will leverage PCG’s extensive partnerships and resources to expand teacher supports, accelerate pathways to licensure and employment, and offer portability and additional supplemental income opportunities to members of TeachersConnect.”
