I am honored to have been “anointed teacher leader” by my department chair. I am even more excited to collaborate with her on building a community of adult learners sharing the journey of implementing the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
This weekend, we made our first steps as a team toward developing a structured plan for implementation by attending the Teach to Lead Summit in Louisville, KY. While participating in this conference, I was able to network and be inspired by the talented teacher leaders collaborating to improve education for all.
A new era of education seems to be approaching and I am excited to rebel against the tradition of leaving the classroom to pursue leadership and instead champion the hybrid role of teacher leader or “teacherpreneur”.
Thank you to all who continue to inspire me to be better everyday!
