At Teachers Supporting Teachers they believe that the students of Chicago deserve an excellent education, and that begins with our teachers.
Our KDSL Global Fellow Tiffany Johnson recently attended the TST Spring Elite Teacher Leader Networking Session in Chicago. One aspect of the fellowship includes attending and creating leadership opportunities in your local context. Below is her reflection.
I’m writing this because the past event put together by Teachers Supporting Teachers (TST) was an opportunity that no Chicago educator should not have missed. I left feeling inspired from spending a day networking with some of the top educators in the city. But, I want to assure you that the founders of Teachers Supporting Teachers will be hosting more events that I recommend you attend. The location of the event was in the Willis (Sears to the old school Chicagoans) Tower where about 60 people in the field of education congregated. There were three breakout sessions that everyone had the opportunity to attend. All of these sessions were interactive and most importantly all focused on leadership. At the end of the event, TST mentioned that they are available for 1:1 mentoring with schools, which is something that many people, including myself, showed interest in. In the future, I recommend you attend any event TST puts together, because you will meet a variety of resource rich people.
