Teachers Lead Philly is a network of practicing teachers devoted to teacher leadership in Philadelphia. We believe that teachers are experts who can lead educational change, transform the profession, and enact the policies that will best help students learn. We promote teacher leadership by sharing our expertise and experience, engaging colleagues in shaping our profession, and contributing to educational research and policy at all levels.
