Vermont-NEA Professional Programs
Vermont-NEA is here to support members in their professional learning and leadership goals. Teacher and ESP leadership is essential in order to meet the high educational goals we have for Vermont students. Secretary Duncan and NBPTS President and CEO Ron Thorpe, announced a new initiative that will create more leadership roles for teachers without leaving the classroom. They both recognize that when important decisions are made about the work teachers do, teachers need to be at the table in order to “set the direction for their classrooms, schools, the profession, and ultimately ensure students have the best opportunity to learn.” Vermont-NEA supports the “Teach to Lead” initiative and would like to see teacher leaders in every Vermont school.
