Conference Presentation: Teacher Leadership Roles that Impact Student Achievement 

How can you retain your most talented and experienced teachers and improve student achievement? Identifying impactful and meaningful teacher leadership roles and pathways is the answer for many school systems. Teachers tend to have the same job description their entire career. Without opportunities to grow professionally, take on new responsibilities and expand their influence teachers become dissatisfied with their jobs. According to NNSTOY’s “Teacher Career Advancement Initiatives,” teacher leadership opportunities help districts retain more effective, experiences teachers. In addition, MetLife’s Survey of the American Teacher (2012) showed that 51 percent of teachers are interested in a hybrid role that combines classroom teaching with teacher leadership roles or responsibilities.

Please join this interactive session to learn what the latest research from NTC and the Consortium for Policy Research in Education at the University of Pennsylvania says about the importance of teacher leadership in improving student achievement and identify specific roles for teacher leaders that improve student learning.

Fourth Annual Better Together: California Teacher Summit

Speakers

Date

July 27, 2018

Location

30+ locations across California

Have you registered for the California Teacher Summit on July 27? This free statewide day of learning – led by teachers, for teachers – is a unique opportunity for teachers to come together to collaborate, re-energize ahead of the new school year and be a part of a teacher network that will last beyond the summit.

The theme this year is “It’s Personal: Meeting the Needs of Every Student.” Through TED-style EdTalks and Edcamp-style discussions, the Summit gives California teachers a voice in their own learning, provides an opportunity to share ideas, and connects them with a professional network to personalize learning for themselves and the students they serve. Teachers will walk away with a clear sense of what it looks, sounds and feels like to personalize learning so they can begin tailoring lessons in their own classrooms.

For the past three years, teachers have described the Summit as a powerful day of learning that made them proud of what they do and reminded them what an important difference they make in the lives of their students. The Summit is free and open to all California pre-K-12 teachers, teacher candidates, school administrators and other educators.

Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter @CATeacherSummit and joining the conversation using the hashtag #BetterTogetherCA.

Presentation Time: Friday, July 27, from 8:30am-12:30pm

Webinar

Part 2: WEBINAR: A Baseline for Student Success: Focusing mentor practices on instruction and learning to increase student achievement 

Over the last 20 years, New Teacher Center (NTC) has worked with teachers, teacher leaders, schools and school districts, researchers, state agencies, policymakers, and a range of educational institutions to define the characteristics and fundamental elements of high-quality mentoring. For the first time, NTC is publicly releasing these research-based, proven characteristics in the Mentor Practice Standards.

The Mentor Practice Standards identify the characteristics of high-quality, effective mentoring practices that increase student achievement. These standards accelerate the development of new teacher effectiveness, improve teacher retention, build teacher leadership, increase student learning, and support equitable outcomes for every learner.

This webinar built off our prior conversation on the Teacher Induction Program Standards and worked to provide:

  • An overview of the Mentor Practice Standard
  • An understanding of how quality mentor standards can increase student achievement
  • A framework for how these standards can be implemented in districts and schools across the country
