Emerging Leaders Academy

Emerging Leader Academy
Take the Next Step in Your Career…. 
Join other teacher leaders for a year long professional growth experience to maximize your impact. 

Program Description: 

School districts depend on teacher leaders to facilitate and promote their vision for teaching and learning. Effective teacher leaders complement administrators by serving as a conduit for two-way communication, exploring the utility of new ideas or processes, modeling new practices and providing support to their colleagues. They serve in formal and informal roles often with little preparation or support. 

Pennsylvania ASCD recognizes the power and potential of teacher leaders and has developed an opportunity to bring together new and veteran teacher leaders to deepen their understanding of what it means to be a leader and provide support on navigating their way through the challenges associated with their work. This event promises ample opportunities for networking! 

Participants must be nominated by an active PASCD member. The teacher leader does not need to be a current member of PASCD.  Nominate a Teacher Leader today! Keep in mind, space is limited. Participants will earn 30 Act 48 hours for successfully completing the program.
