In 2017, the Center for Science & Mathematics Education created the Teacher Leadership Cohort (TLC) from a select group of Elementary STEM Endorsement (ESE) program graduates. The year-long TLC program for in-service teachers is designed to build teachers’ capacity to implement the content and skills learned in the ESE program. TLC members participate in a variety of leadership development activities, including:
- Practicing protocols from business and non-profit sectors to problem-solve complex interpersonal dynamics
- Developing ways to analyze student work with a focus on meaningful formative assessment for individual students
- Meeting with legislators to discuss ways to improve communication surrounding public education
- Building self-care plans to help regulate emotional responses to students’ needs and behavior
