“Ask any teacher the question, “Have you ever been frustrated at how a decision made outside your classroom affected the students inside your classroom?” “I believe every teacher in America would answer “yes”.”
I’ve spent the past ten years of my life working with teachers across the country to make changes on behalf of their students. From introducing new programs in their districts to changing union contracts to successfully advocating for state legislation, I’ve helped thousands of teachers become effective advocates—empowering them to support their students. I’ve captured the lessons teachers need to build influence and power in my new book, How to Be Heard, and will be sharing them across a series of skill-building Teaching Partners Live Workshops.
I offer nuts-and-bolts strategies that together are recognized as the “price of admission” to becoming a credible and welcomed participant in important policy conversations and decisions. I believe that it’s possible for teachers to initiate change, and to participate effectively on the policy playing field.
I hope you’ll join me. You’re invited to any–and all–of the four workshops that together comprise my TeachingPartners Live Collaborative How to Be Heard. Click the “Workshop” tab above to register and learn the “price of admission” to becoming a credible and welcomed participant in important policy conversations and decisions.
When you’re done, you’ll be ready to initiate change. You can also apply what you’ve learned toward receiving a Certificate of Participation and earning a micro-credential from the Center for Teaching Quality.
