Teacher Leadership

Teachers are the heart and soul of the movement to expand educational opportunity. Across the nation, 13,500 alumni are full-time pre-K through 12th grade teachers. The impact of their commitment to students, students' families, and communities can never be understated. Here in Chicago/Northwest Indiana we are committed to elevating the voices and stories of our alumni teachers and connecting them with opportunities to enhance their individual and collective leadership, inside or outside of the classroom.
