Theme of the Month

Join us each month as we focus on a topic of interest to STEM Teacher Leaders with an expert webinar panel, open
discussion, resources and blog post. 


William O'Brien
William O'Brien kicks off this month's theme, "Leading without Leaving the Classroom," with a blog post that describes his own journey as a classroom mathematics teacher and his thoughts on the upcoming expert panel and facilitated discussion. He invites all members to take an active part in sharing their experiences by commenting on this blog post.


In this facilitated discussion starting December 5th, we will discuss the challenges and opportunities that exist for teachers who want to stay in the classroom to work directly with students but also want to continue developing professionally as a STEM teacher leader. If you were unable to attend the online Expert Panel, you can view it here:
