Teacher and Leader Development

Many teachers want to grow and make an impact beyond their classroom while staying rooted in their school building, but there are often few avenues to do so. NIET's teacher leadership system restructures leadership opportunities to help schools identify teachers who could take on formal teacher leadership roles and responsibilities with commensurate pay — but stay connected to the classroom.

These teacher leaders provide support to colleagues and administrators and increase instructional capacity in their school communities. When teacher leaders are given the training, accountability, and authority to drive instruction, schools improve teacher retention and accelerate learning.
