What would your perfect teacher leadership program look like?

I'm collaborating with amazing teachers and teacher leaders in developing the program I wish I had to prepare me for teacher leadership! One that includes the skills for the changing role of a teacher, that helps teachers prepare for new roles, implement ideas that impact students, and/or lead from the classroom. This program will be wrapped around the Teacher Leader Model Standards and will be a blended-learning program, ...more »

Developing Future Teacher Leaders while Strengthening Current Ones

An opportunity for teacher leadership growth exists between pre-service teachers (PSTs) and current teacher leaders (TLs). What I envision is a partnership between a college of education and a local K-12 school. Relationships between these institutions exist for observation and student teaching experiences, but not as frequently for experiences outside the classroom– or at least, not with a focus on teacher leadership. ...more »

UnCommon Planning for Higher-Level/Common Core Instruction and Assessment

Uncommon Planning brings together cross-curricular, cross-school, and cross-grade level teachers to collaborate around higher-level (can be Common Core) instruction and assessment. The program focuses on developing "emerging teacher leaders" - effective teachers who might not enjoy formal leadership roles but want to contribute to and learn from a broader conversation about high-level teaching. We started in the 2012-13 ...more »

Teacher as an Advocate

As an NBCT, one of our roles is being an advocate for quality instruction and the needs of students to a variety of stakeholders. I often hear from colleagues is what does advocacy look like? At times I have seen it take on an “us against them” situation as evidenced by the comments I heard from teacher leaders that ranged from administrators trusting us as professionals to telling administration to back this is the ...more »

Professional Learning among CTE Teachers

While core subject teachers in my district participate in PLCs each day, the Career & Technical Education teachers do not have any sort of PLC since each teaches something different. All teachers benefit from collaborative interaction, so I am starting a collaborative learning group among the CTE teachers I work with at my high school. Because our planning times do no coincide, I am using Google classroom to share professional ...more »

Teacher-led Prof'l Development

The stewardship of the teaching profession should reside with teachers, yet so much of professional development is done "to" teachers rather than "with" them. Of course we need strong back-bone organizations that can help teachers see themselves as facilitators of their own life-long learning. Districts, non-profits and professional organizations, for example, can help teachers emerge as the leaders we need. We also ...more »
