Educator Evaluation

Teacher Leadership

Leveraging teachers' expertise both within and outside the classroom is critical for supporting students' success, providing professional growth opportunities for teachers, and building capacity within schools and districts. To encourage teacher leadership opportunities, ESE partnered with ten districts during the 2014-15 school year through a Teacher Leadership Professional Learning Network. Resources from this partnership and along with our ongoing work with teachers through the Teacher Advisory Cabinet are included below. We hope these resources will promote opportunities and conversations about how teacher leadership can be embedded within districts to support student learning and educator effectiveness.
