CCSSO’s National Teachers of the Year Program – Educator Perspective Breakout Sessions at AIR

Recognizing teachers’ great work, amplifying their voices and empowering them to participate in state and national policy conversations are the goals of CCSSO’s National Teacher of the Year program. In April 2015, GTL Center leaders had the chance to meet the celebrated teachers from each state as they visited the Education Policy Center at American Institutes for Research’s Washington, DC, headquarters. Teachers received support in writing for policymakers and participated in workshops exploring issues including equitable access to great teachers and leaders.

Listen to teachers share inspirational moments in the classroom and public policy issues that affect their day-to-day practice.
