Teacher Leadership

201819TeacherLeadersTeacher Leaders work to increase learning for all students by strengthening teaching practices through job-embedded professional development.

Ames Community School District received a grant to launch its teacher leadership plan through Iowa’s Teacher Leadership and Compensation System. The system is designed to tap into the expertise of top teachers to improve classroom instruction, raise student achievement, attract and retain more effective teachers, and reward teachers for extra responsibilities. The 2015-16 school term is the inaugural year for the fully-funded and fully-staffed plan, however, Ames has long been ahead of the state’s education reform in providing instruction that meets students’ individual needs and in creating ways for teachers to collaborate. The grant gives the District more resources and opportunities to support its vision and goals.
