Announcing Teach to Lead in Nashville

We are pleased to announce that Teach to Lead will be hosting our 15th Teacher Leadership Summit in Nashville, TN, April, 27-29, 2018.

The Nashville Teacher Leadership Summit will bring teacher leaders and other stakeholders together to collaborate, problem solve, and develop action plans to benefit students and schools.  Teams must contain at least one practicing classroom teacher, and idea submissions can address any perceived area of need in schools.

Over the past three years, Teach to Lead has helped increase the national conversation on teacher leadership and has helped teachers turn their leadership ideas into action.  The US Department of Education and ASCD have been joined by over 150 supporting organizations in this work. We are pleased that Teach to Lead will now be hosting its 15th Teacher Leadership Summit in Nashville, TN April 27-29, 2018.

At the Summits, educators from around the nation will work to collaborate, problem solve, and develop action plans to put their own teacher leadership ideas into action. All educators are welcome to apply as individuals but Teach to Lead asks that you bring a team of up to 5 stakeholders (teachers, principals, administrators, school board members etc.) to make the best progress at the Summit. At least one member of your team MUST be a practicing classroom educator.

Idea submissions will be reviewed by a team of teachers. For those who receive an invitation to participate, registration, lodging for those traveling over 50 miles, and some meals are provided free of charge. Participants must cover their own travel costs. Educators can submit an idea for the Summit regardless of where they live, but travel costs are not covered, so please keep that in mind when you apply.

The deadline for idea submissions for the Nashville Summit is March 7 at 11:59pm ET. All idea submissions must be completed and submitted by this date and time.

Convening on Systems of Support for Excellent Teaching

The 2016 Teaching and Principal Ambassador Fellows at the U.S. Department of Education, with support from the Council for Chief State School Officers, are pleased to invite you to attend a Convening on Systems of Support for Excellent Teaching.  This event will bring together a diverse group of educational stakeholders in a series of structured conversations around the development of a framework for the retention and support of our nation's educational workforce.  The Convening will be held from 8:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 19th in the U.S. Department of Education’s Barnard Auditorium, located at 400 Maryland Ave, SW, Washington, DC 20202.  

It is critically important to involve the voice and expertise of teachers, school leaders, and district, state, and national educational leaders to work collaboratively to develop and strengthen systems of support for teachers.  As a result, we are hoping you can join in the conversation and work at the convening as you have demonstrated your commitment to fostering innovation in the area of professional development through your involvement with Teach to Lead.  As a former Teach to Lead summit participant, we believe you have a unique and important perspective on the core principles that should inform systems for teachers’ professional learning and growth.
