about

teachers for tomorrow


dropcap_tTeachers for Tomorrow, LLC, was launched in January 2013 by Aleta Mechtel in response to a shortage of quality substitute teachers for her childcare centers. Aleta and her leadership team kept having to step into the classroom to keep student-to-staff ratios in compliance.

In response to her desire for stress-less support, Aleta created a substitute teacher placement company. TFT employs retired, newly graduated, and part-time teachers, all of whom are fully qualified and trained to effectively substitute. . In just six short years, TFT is now serving over 60 childcare centers in the greater Minneapolis area!

dropcap_aAleta Mechtel began her career teaching in a childcare center. From the beginning, she knew she’d found her passion in serving young children and the childcare industry. In 2000, Aleta opened her first childcare center/ school and it quickly became the “school of choice” in the Victoria area of Minnesota.

Her first school’s success led to an expansion, bringing with it the challenges of being a multi-site owner, the greatest of which was having access to a pre-qualified and trained group of substitute teachers. Aleta and her team brainstormed the best way to address this vital need and Teachers for Tomorrow, LLC was born.
