Ask a group of early educators how many of them consider themselves leaders in their work, and one may get a variety of answers. Administrators and classroom lead teachers may clearly see themselves in leadership positions, while teachers who are newer to the profession may not yet identify as leaders. However, the concept of teacher-leadership is not necessarily tied to a job title or a role in an educational setting. The National Education Association (NEA) (2011) describes teacher leaders as, "experienced professionals who have earned the respect of their students and colleagues and have gained a set of skills that enable them to work effectively and collaboratively with colleagues... [They] want to remain closely connected to the classroom and students, but are willing to assume new responsibilities that afford them leadership opportunities in or outside the classroom while still teaching full or part-time.”
In this workshop, educators will explore concepts of leadership and advocacy, while making connections with other educators and reflecting on how they can grow as leaders in their field.
