Teachers Lead Philly is a network of practicing teachers devoted to teacher leadership in Philadelphia. We believe that teachers are experts who can lead educational change, transform the profession, and enact the policies that will best help students learn. We promote teacher leadership by sharing our expertise and experience, engaging colleagues in shaping our profession, and contributing to educational research and policy at all levels.
Interested in getting involved? If you are a Philly teacher, you can join one of TLP's Committees. If you are not a Philly teacher but are interested in engaging and supporting TLP's work, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn about our Advisory Committee and how you can get involved.
