Across the country, many school districts have incorporated instructional coaches or onsite professional developers to lead school reform efforts. In view of the current economy, specialized positions are being discontinued and teachers are being asked to step into teacher leadership roles. Consequently, hundreds of educational professionals are finding themselves in high-stakes, critically important roles in their schools, with little or no professional development to prepare them for successfully performing their tasks.
The lack of professional learning for teacher leaders places teachers and students at risk. Our mission is to provide classroom teachers, those who are working under tremendous stress “in the trenches”, a way to honor themselves as they implement Personal Leadership Skills designed to produce extraordinary results in leadership performance.
The Teacher Leadership Academy uniquely addresses what has consistently been missing from professional development….appreciating the teacher. We believe that if teachers can re-ignite their personal value, a measurable shift can occur in classrooms and schools!
