Teach to Lead

VISION 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. MISSION Mission   The program’s mission is to advance student outcomes by expanding opportunities for teacher leadership. This is achieved by providing resources, facilitating stakeholder consultation, and encouraging professional collaborations to develop and amplify the work of teacher leaders. Teach to Lead envisions a world in which teachers are valued as the foremost experts in instruction and, as such, are leaders of informing, developing, and implementing education policy and practice to steer systematic improvements to benefit student learning. What They Do All of Teach to Lead’s work is based in a belief that teachers are experts in schools and instruction, and as such, should be supported to lead the key changes and innovations that their students, colleagues and profession deserve to do their best work every day. Teach to Lead contributes to this work by shining a spotlight on teacher leaders and providing resources, facilitating stakeholder consultation, and encouraging professional collaborations to develop and amplify their work. Over time, they have developed four key ways to provide direct support to teacher leaders across the country.
