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.
