UNCG STEM TLC 2017 LEADERSHIP LAB
The UNCG STEM Teacher Leader Collaborative (TLC) is a project that was developed in Washington, D.C. at the U.S. Department of Education’s Teach to Lead teacher leadership Summit. Original team members included UNCG faculty, practicing teachers and an undergraduate student. The UNCG STEM TLC project was chosen by Teach to Lead to host a Leadership Lab based on its design, impact and potential to scale.
The STEM Teacher Leader Collaborative addresses three primary challenges:
Support for teachers to include STEM rigor in elementary classrooms in high-needs schools;
STEM equity for students, which is rarely incorporated in the school day; and
Teacher retention - to retain talented teachers, they not only need support, but also to be celebrated as professionals and connected with other like-minded professionals.
Monday, November 6, 2017 from 8:30am-3:00pm

Over the past three years, Teach to Lead has helped drive a national conversation on teacher leadership and helped teachers turn their leadership ideas into action. The U.S. Department of Education, the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, and ASCD have been joined by a diverse range of over 149 organizations in this critical work. Together with these supporting organizations, our goal is to expand opportunities for teacher leadership by providing resources, facilitating stakeholder consultation, and encouraging professional collaborations to develop and amplify the work of teacher leaders.
As one of the key stakeholders identified by the planning committee, we hope that you can join the U.S. Department of Education, the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, ASCD and other Teach to Lead supporters to learn more and contribute to these educators’ important work.
