Louisiana Teacher Leaders make up a group of outstanding educators from around the state who are focused on high expectations for students. This group has three core beliefs:

  • Those closest to students are best positioned to make instructional decisions.
  • The state has a role in providing resources and training directly to teachers.
  • Teacher Leaders are a powerful voice in training fellow teachers.

Teacher Leader Advisors play a critical role in creating tools and facilitating professional development for educators across Louisiana. Teacher Leader Advisors:

  • evaluate publisher-submitted curricular materials for quality
  • update the ELA Guidebooks content and analyze texts
  • score and annotate student work samples
  • develop and facilitate professional development sessions for fellow Louisiana educators
  • participate in focus groups related to LDOE’s academic strategy
  • review new course framework documents for updated social studies standards
  • develop high-quality instructional tasks and resources for math, science, social studies, and literacy
  • raise awareness among Louisiana educators of the tools and resources available in the Louisiana Teacher Toolbox
