Teacher Leader Development
Leadership matters. At its core, teacher leadership is multifaceted and is not easily defined. There is no one path to follow. Teacher leaders are constantly evolving along with the profession to meet the needs of Arizona’s children. Developing teacher leaders is a critical goal of the Arizona K12 Center. No one person influences student learning more than teachers. It's vital that teachers assume leadership roles, both in their own professional learning and in their school communities.
In 2011, the Arizona K12 Center launched the Arizona TeacherSolutions Team in partnership with the Center for Teaching Quality (CTQ).
Teacher Leadership Institute
Our annual Teacher Leadership Institute is a one-of-a-kind event committed to cultivating learning, igniting reflection, and supporting the creation of equity imperatives.
"Teachers who recognize they are leaders take risks. They advocate for their students, their communities, and themselves as professionals. Teacher leaders consider what is and imagine what can be. Then, they do something to help move from where we are to where we want or need to be."
