NSBA Conference: Student Achievement Through Empowering Teacher Leadership

New professional teaching standards expect teachers to demonstrate leadership in the classroom, school, district and profession.  North Carolina's Asheboro City Schools will share their journey in developing a Teacher Leadership Academy designed to build leadership skiills and capacity for all teachers.  In its fourth year, the academy is having a powerful impact on professional practice.  This session optimizes conditions for empowering leadership with practical information for developing a local academy.

This is something I also loved and would like to implement in our district. I can see where it would increase networking and collaboration among teachers, as well as re-energize or motivate those that maybe feeling stagnant or burned out.  Provides necessary additional skills for leadership positions in key roles and methods of communication.
