About The STEM Teacher Leadership Network Beta Site 

The STEM Teacher Leadership Network Beta Site was created by TERC as a first step towards developing a professional learning community for teacher leaders, aspiring teacher leaders, as well as researchers and administrators interested in teacher leadership. Our vision is to create an interactive site that will connect teacher leaders and further their work to improve schools, effect policy, and re-envision the future of STEM teaching and learning. 

This Beta Site is funded by the National Science Foundation, Award# 1932761. Opinions expressed on the site are those of contributors and do not necessarily reflect those of the National Science Foundation. 

We invite your feedback on this beta site and anticipate a full launch late November. We will be in touch with all of you who have created an account to announce the launch.
