Our April Newsletter features great summer leadership opportunities as well as information on upcoming events in Philly education.
Teacher Leadership Summer Institute: The Teacher Leadership Summer Institute is a residential leadership program designed to give Philadelphia teachers (who have completed at least three years of teaching) an opportunity to explore the next stage of their career path. Join us to experiment with various forms of educational leadership, learn the skills needed to be an effective leader, and get the support of a group of colleagues with whom to share ideas and collaborate. Applications are now closed.
