On December 5, 2022, the 2022 INCS Teacher Leadership Cohort (TLC) was announced. The goal of this eight-month fellowship is to equip teachers with the experiences, knowledge and skills to support them to speak out on behalf of their students, their schools and themselves. The voice of teachers is sorely absent from discussions about the future of education and these 15 teachers want to be part of the conversation.
The 2023 TLC Members represent charter public schools from across the state of Illinois. Here is the list:
INCS started the Teacher Leadership Cohort in 2020 to build the capacity of charter public school teachers to speak out and share their opinions. The TLC aims to support the commitment and drive of charter teachers by providing leadership development opportunities to help them to amplify their critical voices.
Here are two videos from members of the 2022 Teacher Leadership Cohort:
Applications for the fourth cohort of the INCS TLC will open in October 2023.
