By becoming part of our inspiring pool of teacher-leaders, your school will know that you have the skills and competencies needed to change the lives of students in high-needs schools because of your potential to be a change-maker in classrooms and communities.
Every year, since starting my journey as a teacher, I had only one goal: To be the best teacher I could be. I never really saw myself as a leader, but my coaching sessions helped me understand my qualities as an individual to be the change I want to see and to take charge of the outcomes I desire as a teacher. Therefore, I always look forward to my coaching sessions, because it helps me unpack many things beyond what I see. This in turn, energises me to serve and lead the community I now find myself in. Thank you so much TTN and Bruce for moulding me into a resilient, strong, persistent and confident teacher and leader
To be a true leader, is to be a true teacher. Teacher-Leaders have the ability to unlock the best in people. Teachers who are role models and leaders are grounded in being continuous learners themselves.
