About The STEM Teacher Leadership Network Prototype 

The STEM Teacher Leadership Network Prototype 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 effort is an outgrowth of our current work on MSPnet.org and is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF# 12-4055). Opinions expressed on the site are those of contributors and do not necessarily reflect those of the National Science Foundation. 

The STEM Teacher Leadership Network was Beta tested  during the month of  March 2019 and extensive data and feedback was gathered. Our appreciation to all who took part in the Beta test and who offered valuable suggestions, opinions, and ideas for further development. We are now in the process of enhancing the prototype site based on the feedback received.  We  hope to have a full launch of this site in the Fall of 2019 (pending NSF funding.) We will be in touch with all who created a log-in on the site to keep you abreast of future development. 

TERC is a non-profit research and development organization at the frontier of theory and practice.
