2020 Teacher-Powered Learning Collaborative
As we rethink power in education this year, we are launching a new opportunity for you to connect with like-minded educators and move forward on your teacher-powered journey.

In the Learning Collaboratives, cohorts of 6-8 educators will meet virtually every month to focus on one teacher-powered practice. It is a chance to meet new friends in the teacher-powered movement, share successes, brainstorm, and get advice on challenges your team is facing.

  • Cost is $50 for the whole year, which includes a copy of the Teacher-Powered Practices guide, and facilitated cohort activities
  • Cohorts start April 2020 and will meet at least once a month on Zoom video conferencing service, plus regular email check-ins
  • Led by a teacher-powered teacher ambassador

Our journey to teacher-powered

Transitioning to a new school leadership structure

Laura Jeffrey Academy opened its doors in 2007, offering a first of its kind girl-focused, STEM-focused middle school. The school followed a traditional administrative model—under which staff were still able to secure autonomy in areas such as the learning program, peer evaluation, and professional development.

When they experienced a leadership transition a decade later, the teacher team took on the hard work of rethinking their leadership structure to bring more voices to the table, increase teacher ownership and accountability, and keep students at the center of decision-making.
