The Teacher Leaders Network

I received an email this afternoon from John Norton, the co-founder and moderator of the Teacher Leaders Network, about my January 13 post. Nope, I am not in trouble!

He introduced himself to me and shared some more great NBCT bloggers in this professional learning community of teacher leaders, the Teacher Leaders Network (TLN) . It is a network of active communities populated by highly accomplished teacher leaders from across the nation who are dedicated to student success and the transformation of teaching into a true profession. Hundreds of expert educators at the heart of TLN are:
• Engaging in daily discussions around practice and policy,

• Collaborating on action research and other projects for improved student learning,

• Sharing their content and pedagogical expertise with pre-service and in-service teachers, and

• Refining their policy insights and contributing their voices to the decisions that affect the students and communities they serve.

Within this great professional learning community is a group of impressive teacher bloggers who are connecting, engaging, sharing their voice with researchers, reformers, administrators and union leaders in an effort to grow and project their voices on matters of teaching policy and expert teaching practice. Here are some of my favorites, who are also NBCTs:

- Nancy Flanagan, Teacher in a Strange Land (at Teacher Magazine)
- teacherken at Daily Kos
- John Holland at Emergent Learner
- Marsha Ratzel at Reflections of a Techie
- Cindi Rigsbee at The Dream Teacher
- Dayle Timmons at Timmons Times
- Mary Tedrow at Walking to School
- Mike Fisher at Digigogy
