Teacher Leadership

We believe there is value in supporting and empowering teachers who wish to share the responsibility of leading improvements in our classrooms, schools and district programs. We are also committed to transforming Bloomington Public Schools into an organization in which administrators and teachers share responsibility for planning and decision-making.

Teacher leaders are active members of teams that guide the work of instrcutional improvements and learning supports.  These teams employ a representative model to ensure teachers have a strong voice in matters related to curriculum, instruction and professional development. 

This fundamental change in our organizational culture is based on valuing the central role teachers play in the improvement of our educational system.

Teacher Leaders

Classroom teachers who leave the classroom for a period to share their expertise on important projects and initiatives on behalf of all staff. They are deans and tech coordinators, QComp coaches, curriculum specialists and project coordinators.
