Education Talk Radio: Empowering Teacher Leaders
Teacher leaders and Stefan Pryor, Commissioner of Education for the State of Connecticut, spoke to Education Talk Radio about Teach to Lead and the importance of empowering teacher leaders.
Teach to Lead, a new initiative from the Department of Education and the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards, seeks to catalyze fundamental changes in the culture of schools and the culture of teaching so that teachers play a more central role in transforming teaching and learning, and in the development of policies that affect their work.
Teacher leaders Maddie Fennell, a Nebraska elementary literacy couch and literacy advisor for Teach to Lead, and Chris Poulos, a Connecticut high school Spanish teacher and board member of the National Network of State Teachers of the Year, discuss their work to empower teachers in their respective states.
