Our mission is to provide Arizona’s special education teachers with resources, support and recognition to ensure they make a long-term commitment to the classroom, thereby increasing student achievement with consistency and quality of education. TRP is committed to supporting recruitment, development, and retention of Arizona’s special educators, increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of Arizona’s schools, and improving educational opportunities for all students.
TRP was founded by special educators who experienced firsthand the challenges of special education. The organization’s leaders are now active members of a statewide community focused on best educational practices. TRP operates under the guidance of the Arizona Community Foundation.
