"Teaching is the foundation of our future society and our economy and we should never forget that . . . We need more people to choose teaching and we need to keep the best people we have in the classrooms with our children. TAP is certainly helping to provide teachers with more choices and career opportunities while still allowing them to remain in the classroom . . ."
