More than 150 teacher leaders, educators, nonprofit and community advocates from across the country will gather this weekend, Jan. 9-11, in Denver to share strategies and build plans to advance teacher leadership in their schools, districts and states. The Denver Teacher Leadership Summit is the second in a series of three regional summits being convened by Teach to Lead, a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of Education and the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, along with 62 supporter organizations. The participants were selected based on ideas they submitted for teacher-led efforts to improve student outcomes. They include teams of educators from 30 states and Washington, D.C.
Teach to Lead focuses on expanding opportunities for teacher leadership in ways that enhance student learning and make it possible for teachers to stay in the classroom while leading in the profession. The summits are designed to reflect and support collaboration between supporters, local school districts, teachers associations and other key leaders on the ground to advance teacher leadership.
