The Power of 2: Partnership Paves the Way for Teacher Leadership Academy
Harmon, Jeanne; Herren, Kip; Luke, Rod; Emry, Terese
Journal of Staff Development, v33 n1 p28-31 Feb 2012
A clear vision is the essential foundation for making decisions about precious resources for implementing professional learning: (1) people; (2) time; and (3) money. The Auburn School District in Washington state learned firsthand how a clear vision drives resource allocation to support strategic actions and how effective partnerships can be the best solution when internal resources are not available. In collaboration with the Center for Strengthening the Teaching Profession, Auburn aims to impact student learning by developing teachers' instructional leadership skills. After just one year of a new initiative, 50 teacher leaders are transforming teacher and student learning through professional learning communities as well as transforming district culture.
