Groups of teachers around the country are gaining autonomy to collaboratively design and run schools. This session will demonstrate how this movement is growing around the country, increasing student-centered learning, and showcase a few examples of what schools look like when teachers are in charge. Liz Seubert, a teacher at Wildlands School in Augusta, Wisconsin, has worked in a teacher-powered school for 11 years. Liz will provide a glimpse into what it's like to co-found and work in a collaboratively-led school and help participants realize the possibilities in creating or strengthening their own Teacher-Powered School.
