Teacher leadership

Teacher Leadership

Classroom teachers have great insight into what their students need to succeed and are brimming with ideas for how teachers can continue to grow professionally. Educators for Excellence offers leadership trainings for members to help them share that insight with a broader audience and translate their ideas into action.

E4E trainings meet teachers where they are -- as talented professionals who are passionate about their students and vocation -- and helps them develop their individual leadership and organizing skills to become powerful advocates for themselves and their students.

Through E4E’s Teacher Leadership Program, E4E teachers explore how to build relationships and influence within their schools, union, communities, and networks; learn to assess the policy and political landscape for opportunities to create positive change; and become more dynamic speakers about their own insights, experiences, and recommendations to key players in education policymaking.

To see what events and trainings are coming up in your community, please check our our events.

Fostering teacher leadership is just one of the ways E4E members are improving outcomes for students and elevating the teaching profession. Learn more about how we create teacher-led policy recommendations in order to bridge the divide between policymakers and the classroom.
