Unconventional Teacher Leadership

Description: Teacher leadership does not have to involve site-based or district-based administration. You can stay in the classroom and still be a teacher leader.

Nancy, this was really interesting — I particularly was struck by the diversity of kinds of leadership you tried out - looking for something that felt satisfying.  Your experience — including how you decided that (for example) being a principal was not right, would make for some rich conversations with others who are making their own choices right now.

  I totally believe that teachers should be allowing their true interest to guide them into the professional role of teaching, especially in STEM.  Many of our live experiences that build  interests create a significant and valued base to the task of stretching domains and their "languages".  

Thanks for sharing your pathway,

I know Nancy and her students come first always! She doesn't know what a vacation is because her life is filled with how she can improve her teaching craft. It is no surprise why she helps other teachers teach more effectively--she wants the best for all students. I am sure you do too as a teacher--look for these opportunities to increase your foundational skills and knowledge. I received over $100,000 in workshops, trips, coursework, and materials just by answering the call to be a better teacher--just like Nancy. You can too.
