Boston Teacher Leadership Resource Center
The Boston Teacher Leadership Resource Center was established to strengthen teachers’ skills as leaders in their schools and the district. Accomplished teachers are an important resource for school and district change, but they rarely receive professional development that supports the work they do beyond the classroom. As lead teachers, mentors, team facilitators, and members of instructional leadership teams, teacher leaders can strengthen the instructional practice of their colleagues, infuse school decision-making with the reality of the classroom perspective, and ensure all students have access to quality teaching.
The Resource Center provided three types of support:
- Boston Teacher Leadership Certificate: a series of collaborative, graduate-level courses designed by teachers that help teachers strengthen the skills they need to be effective in a range of leadership roles.
- Teacher Leadership Connections: a listing of additional programs and projects that aim to strengthen teachers' abilities to be effective professional resources for one another in their schools, the district, and beyond.
- Teacher Leadership Resource Library: a web-based collection of tools, readings, and instructional tasks for teacher leaders and other school and district leaders.
