Delta Change Agent Network

Teach Plus is launching a network of educators across the Delta to facilitate school-based change while building their skills and exercising their leadership. The Mississippi Delta Change Agent Network will bring teacher leaders together from across districts to create an equity-centered network hyper-focused on improving the culture and climate of schools and, ultimately, the educational experience for students. 

Teach Plus is prepared to support teacher leaders as they engage in redesigning their schools’ instructional practices, as well as the culture of their classrooms and schools, to better meet their students’ academic and social-emotional learning needs. Change Agents will engage their principals and teams of their colleagues in examining the needs of the school community, identifying the scope of the need for change in their schools and charting a path forward to solve problems of practice through continuous improvement.

At A Glance

  • 11 Change Agents from across the Delta developing innovative solutions in their schools

Knowing that, as teachers, you have the greatest proximity to the needs of learners, the Delta Change Agent Network creates a unique opportunity— empowering you, as teacher leaders, and your team of colleagues, to collaboratively explore problems-of-practice in your schools, develop concrete action plans to address them and operationalize those plans using proven, research-based practices. Teach Plus Education Leadership Coaches will provide you with ongoing coaching support as you build your skills as school-wide change agents, foster shared ownership and a growth mindset culture, and develop the tools necessary to understand and measure the impact of your change projects on your peers, students and schools
