New Jersey Education Association
Teacher Leader Academy
Teacher leadership offers a paradigm shift that not only allows teachers to support their peers from a non-evaluativ position, but also to influence the entire system. Teacher leadership gives educators a voice at the decision-making table on instructional issues at the school and/or district level.

About the event
Increasing pathways and opportunities for teachers to exercise leadership elevates teacher voice and informs both policy and practice. The resulting systemic improvements positively impact student learning. Richard Ingersoll's 2017 study found that students in schools with higher levels of instructional and teacher leadership perform at least 10 percentage points higher in both mathematics and English language arts proficiency on their state assessments.
