Where are Teach to Lead Summits?
Teach to Lead hosted our 16th Teacher Leadership Summit in San Jose, CA this past September 28-30, 2018.
The San Jose STEAM summit provided 20 teams of teachers and their supporters from 17 states with time to collaborate, as well as skills and professional consultation, to incubate innovative ideas to improve STEAM instruction for students.
San Jose teams worked to make engaging STEAM instruction available to ALL students; create neer-peer mentoring opportunities to encourage more students to consider teaching; improve professional development for educators; and leverage STEAM strategies to improve school-wide instruction and culture.
“This was my first Teach to Lead summit and it was an amazing experience. Very informative and encouraging,” said one San Jose participant. “I truly feel that as an educator I can change policy.” For more reflections, follow our feed on Twitter at #TTLSummit.
Previous Summits have take places in every region of the country from Long Beach, CA and Tacoma, WA to Boston, MA and Louisville, KY. Five Teach to Lead Summits, including San Jose, have had specific focus areas – including one in Washington, DC on Teacher Preparation and another in Chicago, IL on Equity, Inclusion and Opportunity. All Teach to Lead Summits spotlight and advance groundbreaking, teacher-led work happening in states, districts, and schools across the country.
