About Teachers Leading Academy

A recent study found that students who go to schools where their teachers have a leadership role in decision making perform significantly better on state tests.

It is complex to develop a strong team of adults, create systems to support leadership, and build teacher morale in your school.

Here is an idea to help you! Send a teacher (or team) to the Teachers Leading Academy at MSU May 11-12, 2019.  The National Network of State Teachers of the Year (NNSTOY) will be facilitating this class. Your teachers will bring tools and an action plan back to your school to support and develop their fellow teachers. NNSTOY will provide follow-up support to work around any obstacles to implementation.

The cost of the course is $249. Sign up is at NNSTOYMT.EVENTBRITE.COM.
