Rise Connections, Inc. plans a field day for teachers, providing them with a day of fun and fellowship to lighten the load after a busy, wet, and rainy back-to-school season

Houston, Texas – As the 2019-2020 school year kicks into full swing, one organization is already considering teachers and how to keep them energized, positive, and ready to serve at their highest potential. In an article posted in the Washington Post it cited, “U.S. teachers earn less than 60 percent of what similarly educated professionals make, according to a 2017 annual report on education around the world.” Teachers are feeling burned out because they are lacking funding they need for school programs as well as underpaid. Rise Connections, Inc. is introducing a new initiative to build morale among educational professionals and provide needed funding for school programs.

Rise Connections, Inc. is hosting the T.A.B. (Take A Break) Games on on Dec. 7, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Legacy School of Sport Sciences – 2727 Spring Creek Dr., Spring, Texas 77373 to provide teachers the opportunity to take a break from their everyday routines and have fun, just as their students do, partaking in activities like volleyball, crafts, spirit competitions, a hamburger cookout, and more while competing to win money for school programs.

Rise Connections, Inc. was founded with the purposes of using sports to promote health and wellness, equity, leadership, and character development; empowering people with knowledge to be successful in and outside of the playing realms through education; and promoting involvement in the community through service. They offer a number of programs encompassing youth and adult activities such as mentoring, various athletics recreational outings, educational and business gatherings, as well as women-only events. Teachers and education professionals may register for the T.A.B. games at ttabg.com.
