WTU Teacher Leaders Program

Have you ever seen a news report or talk show discuss issues around teaching and learning and thought to yourself or said to your colleagues, “Why don’t they just ask a real teacher?”

WTU Teacher Leaders is a union program designed to help prepare YOU to be that classroom teacher, facilitating discussion of the issues that affect our profession both here in Washington, DC and nationally.

Goals of the program:

  • Provide Teacher Voice by connecting policy to practice
  • Engage teachers in advocacy
  • Create a network of teacher leaders conversant in educational topics
  • Serve as a sounding board and advisory group for union leaders
  • Utilize research to provide evidence and make a case
