Overview - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

For the past three years, Teach to Lead has been at the center of national conversation on teacher leadership by supporting teachers as they turn leadership ideas into action. In cooperation with over 145 supporting organizations, the U.S. Department of Education, the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, and ASCD have partnered to develop Teach to Lead into a movement to equip teachers to lead from their classroom and enact positive change in teaching and learning.

We are pleased to announce that Teach to Lead will host its 14th Teacher Leadership Summit in Austin, Texas, September 22-24, 2017. The 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.
 
How do participants benefit from the Summit?
  • Receive the time and space to collaborate and develop ideas in order to put them into action
