NEP Executive Director LaShawn Routé Chatmon & Black Teacher Project Founder Micia Mosely

The Black Teacher Project (BTP) recruits, develops, and sustains Black teachers for schools in the United States. Their goal is to create an effective teaching force that reflects the diversity of Black people in this country. To achieve this goal, the BTP:

  1. Develops specific recruitment strategies for future Black teachers;
  2. Develops supports for Black teachers to sustain themselves personally and professionally;
  3. Conducts research on Black teacher health and sustainability.

Black Teacher ProjectThe Black Teacher Project was founded by Micia Mosely – an enormous intellect, super-connector, leader, ally, comedian and former staff member! By incubating the BTP, NEP will serve as their fiscal agent as they work to secure their initial start-up revenue. We are also providing office and meeting space for BTP’s West coast operations.
