Notes from the Tch Laureates

What does it mean to be a "teacher leader?"

Is it working for the United State Department of Education, like Tch Laureate Sean McComb? Is it using Teaching Channel Teams in conjunction with the State of Iowa to help fellow educators transition to the Next Generation Science Standards, like Tch’s Next Gen Science Squad members Kyla Burns and Susan Lyons? How about Tch Laureate Crystal Morey working with teachers on a more personal level, to not only help us cope with the stresses of our profession through #TchWellness, but to also help us find balance in our lives?

As I read through the aforementioned examples, it’s obvious there are a multitude of ways in which teacher leadership can be demonstrated. Our profession is chock full of people looking to make a difference not only in their classrooms, but in other classrooms as well. Over the next month, Teaching Channel will focus on teacher leadership. We'll celebrate the many ways educators are helping each other reshape the 21st century classroom and highlight the importance of networking, shifting practice to meet the needs of our students, the challenges of being a teaching leader, and much more.

As always, our team is excited to engage in the rich conversations that result as we look forward to getting better together.
