Life in Louisville
Teach Kentucky will be commemorating its 15-year anniversary at a private event at the Louisville Water Tower Park on Thursday evening. The organization has brought 272 top college grads to teach in underserved middle and high school public classrooms, according to a news release.
Louisville provides the cultural offerings that rival those of larger metropolitan areas where it is difficult to live comfortably on a teacher’s salary. Our affordable city is a place where educators can build a career and a home.
Louisville is one of those rare cities where there is a ton going on yet is still very affordable. Our teachers love that they can have a comfortable lifestyle on an educator’s salary.
Candidates enjoyed tours of the city parks and schools hosted by current teachers. They also got to hear from several of Teach Kentucky’s stakeholders, supporters and board members, as well as some JCPS and U of L representatives during dinner at Impellizzeri’s Pizza in downtown Louisville.
