After years of developing teams of teachers to lead the district, Sylvania Schools is continuing with the strength of the 21st Century Leadership Team.
The team has been responsible for teacher-to-teacher support, professional development sessions, guidance through new standards and standardized testing, development of technology integration, and a host of other vital communication and training tasks. This year, the teachers chosen to compose the team will continue that leadership.
Teacher leaders will provide professional development support at both the building and district level, participate in district-level strategy development, develop support resources, and manage building and district communication. For those tasks, we’re looking for teachers that are experts in their content-area standards, have experience integrating digital instructional practices, and, most importantly, demonstrate the ability to collaborate with other teachers. The position requires strong leadership work, and it offers the best opportunities to collaborate with colleagues across the district, playing a vital role in the direction of all Sylvania’s schools.
If you are chosen to be a 21st Century Learning Leader, you will be expected to attend a two-hour after-school meeting in September, along with monthly meetings throughout the year. Check the schedule below. At our first meeting we will discuss expectations for you as the leader, covering the framework for monthly meetings, goals to accomplish throughout the year and more.
