For the past five years, Teach to Lead has promoted a national conversation on teacher leadership by supporting teachers to turn their leadership ideas into action. In cooperation with over 175 supporting organizations, the U.S. Department of Education, ASCD, and Teach Plus 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 our 19th Teacher Leadership Summit in San Juan, Puerto Rico, March 27-29, 2020.  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 include at least one practicing classroom teacher and submissions must use teacher leadership as a key strategy, but proposed ideas can address any perceived area of need in schools.

How do participants benefit from the Summit?
  • Receive time and space to collaborate, as well as, guidance through a structured process to ready ideas for action;
  • Obtain the support and expertise of a dedicated “critical friend” from the broader #TTLNetwork of alumni and organizations to help advance the proposed work;
  • Build relationships with ASCD, Teach Plus, and U.S. Department of Education, and many other supporting organizations;
  • Be provided with free registration and hotel accommodations for two nights or parking (the hotel will be provided free of charge for teams traveling more than 50 miles; parking will be provided for teams traveling 50 miles or fewer to the summit).
