TLC: What Works 2019 has ended
Welcome to the Statewide Teacher Leadership and Compensation Conference.
  • Sign up for Three Breakout Sessions: We will have three rounds of sessions that focus on the four components in A Systematic Approach to Elevating Teacher Leadership. Choose the three components that you and/or your team want to focus on: purpose, roles and responsibilities; culture and structures; cultivating dispositions, or assessing impact. Sign up for the order in which you want to work on them. Note that while they are numbered in the paper, they are not chronological and do not need to be done in order. You may want to divide and conquer so that among your team members you attend all four. In order to accommodate the large number of educators, we are limiting each workshop capacity to 100 participants so you may not be able to sign up for the exact workshops or order you want.

  • Administrator Participation: At the same time as the component workshops, there will be workshops designed specifically for administrators. However, we recommend first that administrators attend workshops with their teams. Administrators may choose to attend workshops that meet their individual needs throughout the day.

Limited Capacity full

Teacher dispositions influence the success of teacher leadership efforts. Not all teachers view themselves as leaders. Some assume that only certain teachers can be leaders, or believe they must be chosen as a leader, often by someone in authority. These deeply held beliefs emerge from teachers’ own perceptions about their identity as a teacher and from the hierarchical structures that exist in most education systems. Building teacher agency and challenging assumptions that serve as barriers to teacher leadership are fundamental to refining and expanding teacher leadership. Participants will use the text, A Systemic Approach to Elevating Teacher Leadership, to reflect on their current program and brainstorm next steps.
