Vote for Our Teach to Lead Summit Idea

A message from Director Ronarae Adams…

On Friday evening, I submitted an “idea” (NOT a formal proposal)  to the Boston Teach to Lead  Summit  (Feb 5-6) site, on behalf of the National Board P20 Leadership Center and all NBCTs who have urged me to move the concept of a National Board Distinguished Preparation Pathway forward to all teacher preparation program providers across the country, in partnership with NBCTs. We are thoughtfully building a  cadre of KEY supporters who will commit to unite in ways to bring this idea to full implementation, via a comprehensive, and cost efficient action plan (some of YOU are already on the team).

Our Center is an official Supporter of the Teach to Lead initiative. We have been privileged to provide assistance to participants at the summits as they fine tune their “ideas” for further development.  At the Boston Summit, we hope our team will participate as both  Supporters and Submitters of this idea—the National Board Teacher Pre-Service Preparation  Distinguished Pathway.

We are eager to leverage this innovation to new levels of awareness, consideration and collaborative implementation with identified stakeholders and to engage the project leadership of National Board classroom teachers.

If you have a moment,  please check out the draft with the link below and VOTE to support this idea. VOTING has nothing to do with  who goes to the Summit… it only indicates that the idea is being previewed  and considered by others.  Here is the link:

National Board Distinguished Preparation Pathway

I appreciate your interest and support to acknowledge the concept and current work we are hoping to propel forward in 2015.

Cheers and Happy New Year!
