OK, just because the 2015 NU National Board Teacher Leadership Summit is over doesn’t mean it’s over! We want to keep connected with you and keep you connected with us! As we mentioned, the goal of the summit was to help you realize an idea you had for a change initiative at your school or district using the people or resources you connected with at the summit as a springboard and for ongoing support. To assist with this, we created our 2015 Summit Page in the NBCT-EDGE Online support environment. You can access links to resources shared during the summit, and you can also post your idea in the “Summit Assignment” discussion. Even if you were unable to attend the summit, you can still participate.

National Counselor of the Year Cory Notestine presented at the 2015 National University National Board Leadership Center Summit and Celebration. His talk centered on the “Great Divide” that often prevented counselors from engaging with and collaborating in meaningful ways with teachers and other essential stakeholders to support students. Notestine explored the misconceptions that teachers and counselors often shared about their work. He challenged participants to consider some of their own misconceptions about the work counselors do, and explored some of the systemic issues and other barriers that may be responsible for perpetuating these, such as a lack of collaboration or a lack of time. By the end of his talk, the various stakeholder groups were clearly inspired–as evidenced by comments in the back channel discussion–to move forward on more meaningful engagement and collaboration with counselors to help improve the social and emotional health of students and increase their capacity for learning.
