Teach to Lead® envisions a world where teachers are valued as experts in instruction and are leaders in informing, developing, and implementing education policy and practice to steer systematic improvements to benefit student learning.
Launched in March 2014, Teach to Lead was designed and led by teachers. Today, teacher leaders at the U.S. Department of Education , ASCD, and Teach Plus continue to lead Teach to Lead’s important work.
“Teacher Leadership means working with shared responsibility to help students achieve their dreams.”
– Heard at the Long Beach Teach to Lead Summit
To create systemic and sustained change, Teach to Lead involves and encourages collaboration among stakeholders at every level of education. We are proud to be joined by over 170 diverse Supporting Organizations.
These organizations represent a wide range of public, private, non-profit service and advocacy-focused constituents at all levels of the education system and all see the power of teacher-leadership as key to best serving America’s students.
