Support: Coaching teachers to enact lasting change within their schools by providing them leadership training to develop solutions.

THE PROGRAM:

We believe that impactful, sustainable change for any school needs to come from within. Therefore, we work directly with nominated Teacher Leaders to help them tackle an issue that they have identified in their school. We provide this Teacher Leader with one-on-one weekly leadership coaching. We help the teacher address their chosen issue, but also provide them with the skills needed to continue engaging in Teacher Leadership throughout their career. We train each Teacher Leader to lead an Impact Team consisting of a group of their colleagues. Through our support, they work to address their chosen issue and foster a staff culture of empowerment, commitment, trust and collective responsibility.

TEACHER LIASON &

THE IMPACT TEAM:

The Teacher Liaison (TL) is a classroom teacher with at least 2 years of teaching experience who is seeking to create a wider impact within their school. They are interested in professional development in order to lead a team of their colleagues (The Impact Team). The TL and the school’s administrator will identify a school-specific need, and with the support of a TST Coach, will establish the vision and goals for their Impact Team. They will work over the course of the year to address the identified need and foster a staff culture of empowerment, commitment, trust and collective responsibility.
