Educators for Excellence Boston (E4E-Boston) is proud to announce the launch of its inaugural Massachusetts Teacher Leadership Seminar. During a 3 day weekend in February 2022, a cohort of public educators from across the state of Massachusetts will come together to learn crucial skills around leadership, organizing, advocacy, and influencing policy and decision makers. With the help of E4E staff, the cohort will learn how to advocate on a current education policy campaign, running for elected or appointed leadership, and how to develop their own unique platform of policy beliefs. Following the weekend, there will be 4 additional virtual workshops held via Zoom.
