The Context

The ATF Teacher Leadership Foundation (ATF-TLF) remains committed to supporting teachers in deepening their understanding of teaching and learning; enhancing their abilities as leaders; promoting and enhancing professionalism; engaging teachers in professional conversations; and supporting student learning.  One strategy we're considering is offering the first of its kind annual conference for educators by educators.

The conference will be organized by ATF-TLF  and volunteers.  The revenues from the conference would be reinvested back into the Foundation's flagship programs.  Programs such as Great Practical Strategies, National Board Certification Support, Dossier Support, Career Pathway Support, Managing Behaviors Workshop Series, and Dial-A-Teacher.
