Why teacher leadership?

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world.

Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles,” 1992, p. 190.

Teacher leadership amounts to playing big in the world in service of destiny. How did you make a difference in the world today? Celebrate your actions and opportunities you have each day to make the world a better place through your work as a teacher. Celebrate your colleagues who are also are also making a difference. Together you constitute a mighty force of justice for children and possess the ability to shape society and our future.

Why La Revolutión?

La Revolutión is designed to be a vehicle to inspire widespread teacher involvement in rational school reform.

Outcomes:

  • Teachers feel an increased sense of importance about the work they do.
  • Teachers individually and collectively become more vocal about what’s important in education and what needs to change.
  • Teachers form alliances with each other and with other stakeholders (thought leaders, researchers, media, parents, community members, etc.) that create a new vision for schools and steps that begin to make this vision into reality.
  • People across the world in all fields (educators but also non-educators) recognize the importance of learning, the innate need and capacity and right of humans to learn, and the importance of learning for our future.
