TCS program designed to celebrate teachers' impact
While it was intended to be a one-year program, Team TCS Teachers aligned so well with the core values of our company that we made it an annual feature.
Supporting educators around the world is a core value of TCS because teachers are powerful voices in the lives of future generations. Like teachers, TCS knows the importance of inspiring and training scientists and engineers of tomorrow.
According to the World Economic Forum, 65% of today’s students will end up in careers that don’t exist yet. This means schools are doing their best to prepare children for 21st-century careers without a complete understanding of the next decade’s in-demand jobs.
TCS strives to help teachers prepare for this monumental shift by offering STEM education resources through our flagship programs goIT and Ignite My Future in School.
We thank them
Teachers deserve to be honored and celebrated for what they do in the classrooms and for their community contributions.
They not only prepare students for their careers, but also mold them into becoming responsible adults.
At TCS, we believe that teachers deserve to be honored for building greater futures for all of us. We also believe that marathons have the power to transform lives and communities in the same way that technology transforms businesses. Inviting teachers to run on the streets of New York City, London, Toronto, Boston, and Chicago as VIP guests of TCS is a small way to thank them.
The community formed by Team TCS Teachers, past and present, is inspiring. In addition to a VIP race experience with TCS, they gain so much more by way of the friendships they build with one another and with us.
Leaders of change
The Team TCS Teachers contest is growing, with no plans to slow down.
2023 is already a banner year with our largest cohort of Team TCS Teachers in North America to date, with more than 80 winners and the program’s expansion to the UK. In 2022, our first-ever elite athlete, Susanna Sullivan, joined the group. She may represent the US in the marathon at the World Championships one day and teach math to sixth graders the next.
Ultimately, we hope to expand Team TCS Teachers to all of our sponsored marathons.
If students are the future, teachers lead the charge—in the classroom, around the track, and on 26.2 miles of city streets.
