TLPL Illinois

Teacher-Led Professional Learning (TLPL) 

Our TLPL programs empower excellent teachers to help other teachers improve. We work with schools, districts, and across regions to structure professional development that allows great teachers to spread their expertise and drive improved student learning beyond their own classrooms. 

Through the TLPL network, we connect teachers of similar grades and subjects to collaborate on improving instruction. Teacher Leaders guide a group of their peers through the process of developing new lessons and strategies, and analyzing their impact on student learning.
