Teacher Leadership Institute

The Teacher Leadership Institute helps prepare educators who want to play a greater role in shaping the policies and practices that govern teaching and learning in the U.S.

The TLI is a partnership among the MTA, the NEA, the Center for Teaching Quality and the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. Through the initiative, in 2017, 300 participants from across the country will hone their expertise and engage in leadership work in schools, state houses and associations.
