Initiatives & Projects
The Teacher Council currently has three running committees which are subject to change each year based on the foci and initiatives of the teacher council: Equity, Organization, and Professional Development.
The equity committee has centered its focus on developing relationships between schools, both with teachers and students. This committee creates opportunities to celebrate cultures and empower learners to achieve. This year we have facilitated a coat drive within the network, initiated pen pals between LLN schools and started to envision how specials teachers can showcase student success.
The organizational committee seeks to increase and maintain our transparency as a council within the zone by maintaining our web presence, as well as by managing all data collected via surveys, cohorts, etc. The committee also supports and facilitates onboarding of new TAC members.
Our professional development group has worked to provide teachers with opportunities to learn from other teachers within the zone through learning labs and cohorts. The cohorts offer teachers three labs centered around a problem of practice within a collaborative group. Learning labs give teachers their choice of one day labs that highlight a particular area that a teacher wishes to grow in.
