A summer institute for urban teacher leaders is being hosted this week at
Teacher Leadership for Urban Schools will provide teachers who have been instructors for 3-11 years with an opportunity to:
- Explore the next stage of their career path;
- Experiment with various forms of educational leadership (e.g. conducting action research, mentoring, sharing and collaborating with others within and outside the school and District, moving into administrative positions, and becoming an "entrepreneur").
On Thursday, August 4th, I will participate in the panel "Entrepreneurship in Education."
Are you a teacher who takes risks, tries innovative ideas, and looks to make a big impact in students learning outcomes? If so, you’re the type of teacher we would like to feature in an upcoming blog about educators as social entrepreneurs?
