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.
