Lead On

September 29, 2006 1 min read

Your recognition that teacher-leaders are key to continuous improvement and reform in education [“Starting Over,” August/September 2006] made my day! Having worked with development of teacher-leaders since the early 1990s, I am amazed by the impact teachers can have in their own schools and districts when they truly begin to believe in themselves as leaders and gain knowledge and leadership competencies. Your publication has the potential to arm these leaders with knowledge of research and your web site to provide a forum for interaction. Thanks!

I just wanted to say that I love the new Web site—it’s really easy to navigate, and it looks really sharp. And I think focusing on teacher leadership is a superb way to organize your content and shape your message. Much of the work happening at the Vermont Department of Education centers on supporting teacher leadership. So I will make sure to pass along the news of your new site and focus to my colleagues and to the field.
