Teach Plus Teacher Leaders Redefine Professional Learning

Amanda Hathaway

The Importance of Job-Embedded Professional Learning

When professional learning is job-embedded, teachers can experience  it on a regular basis. Boston TLPL Teacher Leader Amanda Hathaway says that this is the best way teachers can learn to implement new strategies that work. "When we work together around these challenges, it impacts student learning and we can engage students more deeply in higher-level content." ‚Äč

Candace Hines

The Value of Teacher-Led Professional Learning

When a classroom teacher facilitates professional learning, it is more meaningful for participants. Candace Hines, a Memphis TLPL Teacher Leader, knows that she best learns from observing other teachers. "Observing is so important to me because I want to give them opportunities to practice so that as a group we can analyze what they're doing to make sure it's being done correctly.” 

Lindsey Horowitz

Why it's Important for Professional Learning to Be Sustained

Boston TLPL Teacher Leader Lindsey Horowitz led a three-day, 15-hour workshop for teachers. Taking classes with the same teachers before has allowed her to build strong relationships with a professional learning community. "Not only is it more sustained, it is much more collaborative."
