leadership 4-Part Series

Whether you are a teacher operating in a leadership capacity or you lead teachers, this series of workshops is for you!

 Teacher leaders are critical to school's successful implementation of California Common Core State Standards (CaCCSS). Lead teachers across our Valley have been working with colleagues to master critical and instructional concepts.  However, equally important will be their understanding and use of leadership practices to support their colleagues during this complex time of change..

     This Teacher Leader workshop series is specifically designed for teachers in instructional leadership roles-  grade level chairs, department chairs, PLC leads, teachers on special assignment,  or instructional coaches.  Participants will deepen their curricular expertise while learning effective leadership strategies.

Middle Leaders Program - This program designed for certificated and classified middle managers focuses on team-building, leading change, creating positive work environments and dealing with difficult people.
