Because teachers know firsthand what is needed to improve student learning, promoting and supporting teacher leadership are crucial to the success of any education reform effort. Teachers, as leaders need specific knowledge, skills, and dispositions to be successful change agents. To strengthen teachers’ leadership capacity, NEVA provides teachers with key resources: information on current issues that influence education and the teaching profession, Certification programs, educators learning interventions, mentoring and leadership training.
Teachers and educators have a perspective that we can’t get from anyone else. By helping good teachers become great leaders, we plant seeds that will enhance the profession and enable students to reap the reward they deserve—a high-quality education.
