SUPPORT FOR TEACHERS
Teachers have the power to forever alter the trajectory of a student’s life. Their perspective, contributions, and leadership are critical to the betterment of our schools, and their legacy is visible in the success of students, families and communities. We encourage teacher voice and embolden teachers to lead--from the classroom and beyond.
"I've had my leadership degree for awhile but have not pursued a leadership position. Base Camp and Leadership Summit gave me the courage and inspiration to see myself as a leader, and tools I can use to lead in my classroom. Right now, today, in my classroom."
Josh Freedman, Paulding County School District Teacher
BASE CAMP & LEADERSHIP SUMMIT
More teachers attend Base Camp and Leadership Summit than any other leader group. Our partners recognize that seismic culture shifts require engaging teachers meaningfully in the work of school improvement. Base Camp and Leadership Summit is a space for teachers and leaders to examine old practices and chart new territory--together.
Aspiring Leaders has been described by alumni as inspiring, illuminating, and invaluable. We inspire teachers to see themselves as leaders in their classrooms and schools. We illuminate a broader, district-wide perspective that is difficult to see within the four walls of a classroom. We create invaluable opportunities to learn and practice from incumbent leaders, GLISI staff, and fellow cohort members.
