The Goal

Build teacher leaders 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 run one of three Teacher-Led Programs in their school to address their chosen issue: Teacher-Led Teams, Teacher-Teacher Mentorship, or Teacher-Led Professional Development
