Building leaders in the classroom

The Leadership Initiative for Teachers (LIFT) and it’s five-stage career ladder is a great program. It creates a ladder that provides high-performing teachers with opportunities for advancement inside the classroom as well as additional responsibility and increased recognition/compensation that will not require theto stop teaching. The belief in honoring teachers as professionals by allowing us to create an environment where we can at any point in our careers continue to learn and grow with the respect, appreciation, and support from our leaders is a belief system that needs to be embraced across the US. If we are going to invest in education we first need to invest in creating an environment that supports growth and development of our teachers and giving them a place to do what they want to do and that is to educate.
