Message from ITEEA's Council on Supervision and Leadership

November 04, 2021

Today I would like to take a few moments to share with you the ITEEA Council for Supervision and Leadership (ITEEA-CSL). We are a Council that operates within ITEEA. CSL includes state and local school system administrators, school department chairs, professional association officers AND any current or future teacher who wishes to apply their educational leadership is shaping a new generation of learners may also become a member. This means all ITEEA members are welcome to join CSL!

This year, I am serving as President of CSL and I am surrounded by leaders (just like you) who want to make a positive difference in their school, community, state, and nation. We have been working very hard to deliver to you the highest level of leadership and invite you to join us. For 2022, the CSL team has created a strategic plan of work; tied it to a calendar; created committees and task forces; advanced our social media on Instagram and Facebook; developed several NEW membership and leadership initiatives; created an exciting program of sessions for the annual conference; improved our awards; and nominations processes; delivered a live/recorded town hall meeting; AND we are looking to renew our bylaws to reflect our new identity. 

Today I am sharing the following:           

  • Professional Learning Series FREE – Join us in our free Leadership series!  The first session is planned for Nov 17 at 7pm EST.
  • Nominations and Elections Nominate your colleagues or yourself. 
  • Membership Open to all ITEEA members. Join CSL Today. Together we grow stronger!
  • Awards Nominate your colleagues or yourself. Yes, it is work. It is good work.

You do not have to be a CSL member to join our leadership series! This is a great (and FREE) opportunity for you to explore and grow your leadership skills. CSL especially welcomes pre-service teachers; new teachers; veteran teachers; teachers who teach; teachers who are now administrators of some kind; and state leaders too! Did I say this is free? The first session is planned for Nov 17. 

Join us in our live monthly virtual leadership series! Sessions have been organized in partnership with Grand Canyon University. The leadership series will be delivered at no cost via Zoom. The monthly sessions will begin on Nov 17, 2021 and conclude on Feb 16, 2022. Complete this application to participate in the sponsored sessions. The Zoom link for each session will be sent via e-mail to pre-registered participants on the morning of each session. Please share this opportunity with ITEEA members, colleagues, STEM teachers, undergraduate students, and TEECA members.
