Learn what drives one teacher, and help outline your own manifesto.


In his column for the Center for Teaching Quality (CTQ), Sandy Merz shares his teacher leader manifesto. The science and technology educator in the Tucson Unified School District certainly is a teacher leader. In addition to being a professional consultant for CTQ, Merz is National Board Certified in Career and Technical Education and has nearly three decades of teaching under his belt … that’s plenty of time to establish governing principles as an educator.

Wondering how to write your own teacher leader manifesto? Consider these questions:

  • How can I advocate for myself and other teachers?

  • Why is my job important?

  • How can I encourage growth and efficacy in the education field?

  • What do I want to inspire?

  • How can I be fairly compensated for my role?

  • Why is my work meaningful?

  • How can I educate myself to be the best educator I can be?


Teachers across the globe are writing their own manifestos. What’s yours?
