Exploring Teacher Leadership

Exploring Teacher Leadership: An Opportunity for Action

Linda Darling-Hammond, Stanford Professor Emeritus and CEO of LPI and Eric Heins, President of CTA gave the opening remarks about the new opportunities and need for teacher leadership within the changing landscape of our California education system. This is a unique and exciting time to be in education in California.  You can watch the live stream of the opening remarks  from 9:30-10:30 AM. Explore the resources connected with our breakout sessions: 

Introductory Seminars for 2016

 Introductory Seminars are offered April 16, June 4, and August 6. If you're interested in learning about National Board Certification watch the Presentation to review the details of the process and register for one of our sessions.

Candidate Support Program 2016-2017

Our support group officially begins on August 27, 2016!  We offer three kinds of candidate support: face-to-face attending of our monthly sessions at Stanford; hybrid model in which you attend a few sessions face-to-face and most sessions remotely; and our online course in Canvas in which you receive the content and graphic organizers of our support program but you don't collaborate with a Stanford NBCT Support Provider. This last model is most effective if you already have a support network locally and you want to use our support materials.

We have the 2016-17 plan for the year. You can download it and add the dates to your calendar if you're planning on joining us.
