That imprint has, in a way, led me to this moment, launching a new blogging project in collaboration with the National Board and with NBCT-bloggers around the country. In between, I’ve been certified and recertified by the Board, served as a candidate support provider, presented at NBPTS conferences and advocated for the Board and NBCTs in the halls of Congress and my state legislature.
The common thread in these activities has always been an abiding belief in the centrality of teacher voice in quality education. It seems self-evident to me, and many others, that the best schools, systems, and policies emerge from inclusive processes that depend upon teachers’ vision, voices, and leadership at every step. Still, teacher leadership has been a slowly emerging and shifting concept for a long time, and we still have work to do to define and strengthen that leadership.
