Teacher Leadership Institute

The Teacher Leadership Institute is a national program that readies classroom teachers for leadership roles. 

The TLI is a partnership among the MTA, the NEA, the Center for Teaching Quality and the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. Three hundred participants from across the country hone their expertise and engage in leadership work in schools, state houses and associations. TLI makes leadership accessible to educators with busy schedules as learning takes place primarily through webinars and video conferences, with much of the work self-paced.
