Grade Level Leaders (EY / Elementary)

Generative and collaborative Peer Learning Community for Grade Level LeadersΒ 

Are you a passionate grade level leader who enjoys helping others to find success? Does leading others to make a difference in education give you joy? Do you believe that education is a noble profession? Leading grade-level colleagues can be a daunting, but rewarding journey of professional development. However, it can often feel like a journey others may not understand or appreciate.
Β 
If this all sounds familiar, we would love to have you in our community. Let’s seek inspiration, feedback, tips, tools, and resources together. In a fast-paced world like ours, a strong community with genuine connections can be hard to find. Join a group of committed like-minded professionals, who truly believe that education can make a difference, one child at a time, one colleague at a time, one day at a time. Let’s enjoy being in education for the right reasons.
