Maryland leaders want to ensure that all Maryland educators have the supportive environment necessary to help students achieve at the highest levels. The TELL Maryland Survey is a perceptual survey that allows every educator to TELL Maryland if they have positive teaching and learning conditions that research has shown to be important to student achievement and teacher retention.
