Teach to Lead

October 13, 2016

Consider applying with a team

screen-shot-2016-10-11-at-9-10-31-amDuring the summer of 2016 the Maine Arts Leadership Initiative took a team of five to the Teach to Lead Summit in Washington, D.C. for a marvelous learning opportunity. The team focused on where we had been, where we were, and devised a slightly different direction that clarified our mission. It was the time that we transformed from being the Maine Arts Assessment Initiative to the Maine Arts Leadership Initiative.

Since then Teach to Lead has provided gatherings across the country in several locations and continues to meet the needs of teams from schools and districts from every state. Teach to Lead uses the Logic Model and provides the teams with a ‘critical friend’ who is skilled in guiding the team work.

If you are in a school that is transforming or has ideas that you wish to work on and are looking for an avenue to assist please consider applying for consideration to attend. The call for the next round of applications is available with a focus on Inclusion, Equity, and Opportunity. The summit will take place in Chicago on December 2-4 and the application deadline is October 26.

Summit Description

screen-shot-2016-10-11-at-9-06-38-amThe Inclusion, Equity, and Opportunity Summit will bring teacher leaders and other stakeholders together to incubate their ideas for combating inequity and fighting for social justice on behalf of students. Students and educators across the country face unique challenges based on their race/ethnicity, national origin, socioeconomic status, disability, sexual identity, gender, or religion. Ideas will leverage teacher leadership to address equity for our highest-needs students and schools. Teams will be provided support to create an action plan for their ideas, and build relationships with organizations that can further their work.
