Louisiana Teacher Leaders

Welcome to the Louisiana Teacher Leaders! We believe that teachers know best what students need. When they work together with other teachers, they are best positioned to improve student learning. 


July Content Trainings

Registration for the Teacher Leader Summer Content Institutes (in July) is now open. These two-day, content specific institutes will be held around the state the last two weeks of July. Registration details were sent directly to each district's Teacher Leader Point of Contact. Check out the following materials to learn more:

SUPERINTENDENTS COLLABORATION MEETING (JUNE 4-5)

We are pleased to announce that the 2014 Teacher Leader Summit will be held in conjunction with the Superintendents Collaboration Meeting  at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. District cohorts of Teacher Leaders will attend June 3-4, and Superintendents and their District Leadership Teams will remain for the Collaboration Meeting on June 4-5.

Registration

Registration is now closed for the June Teacher Leader Summit. Detailed registration instructions and an overview of the event including the list of session options have been shared with each district’s Teacher Leader Point of Contact.    

HOTELS

The Department will pay for registration and training costs as well as breakfasts and lunches during the events. Districts are responsible for all travel costs associated with the events. There are many hotel options in the area, and participants can begin making their reservations now. We have compiled a list of hotels that are offering a discounted rate in conjunction with the event. Districts should consider reserving a block of rooms for their cohort and ask for a discounted rate, mentioning the state events.

2014-2015 TEACHER LEADER Math and ELA Professional Development

As part of the effort to provide increased, intensive support to Louisiana educators, the Department of Education is providing over 6,500 seats for professional development in ELA and math this summer.  The Department’s Teacher Leader professional development will focus on supporting educators to plan, instruct and assess using Louisiana’s math and ELA standards. As a reminder, districts are only able to send members of their teacher leader cohorts.
