Teacher Leadership

School Representatives and Contacts
For every New Haven school, teachers represent their colleagues in planning, organizing, and conducting the program. This ensures that all teachers may have a direct role in designing the Institute to meet their own needs for further preparation and the needs of their students, and to address school plans that implement district standards. Between September and December of each year, the teachers who serve as Institute Representatives and Contacts canvass their colleagues and determine the subjects they would like the Institute to treat. The Institute organizes seminars that address teachers' requests and interests. Institute Representatives work throughout the year within their respective schools; they meet together at least twice monthly from September until March. In other schools teachers serve as Contacts for the Institute; they communicate regularly with one of the Representatives. The School Representatives and Contacts for the 2013-2014 academic year are:

Seminar Coordinators
A teacher acts as Coordinator of each seminar to provide teacher leadership and help maintain collegial rapport within the group. Coordinators are selected in February and serve through July, resolving any scheduling or administrative problems and facilitating the smooth operation of the seminars. On the recommendation of the Coordinators, the Director may withdraw from the Institute any Fellow whose continued participation they deem to be detrimental to the program.
