Teacher Leader Academy
The Teacher Leader Academy is designed to empower teacher leaders to stay in the classroom, not move into administration. Qualities of teacher leaders include high-level classroom practitioner, active engagement in the profession, passion and commitment to excellence, and readiness to re-imagine the profession.
Flipping the script on what it means to advance professionally, the Teacher Leader Academy re-imagines career advancement as not just vertical but also as expanded impact and influence. The Academy recognizes that teacher leaders have extensive training and skills in curriculum, pedagogy and instructional methods. The Academy brings a roster of faculty that includes renowned scholars and leading practitioners from Montana and across the country. Participants work closely with Academy faculty and their K-12 peers to practice teacher leader skills and competencies focused around leadership, engagement, influence/advocacy, problem-solving, and the lessons learned from teaching and leading in a pandemic riddled environment.
