Hope Street Group, the nonpartisan, nonprofit that connects classroom teachers with their peers and decision-makers across North Carolina and nationally, will begin recruiting its next cohort of North Carolina Teacher Voice Network leaders on Jan. 16.
Hope Street Group staff, along with current Network leaders, will host a short informational webinar on Tuesday, Jan. 10, at 7 p.m., so teachers can hear about Hope Street Group’s work firsthand and prepare to apply before the Feb. 10 deadline. (The live session will be recorded for later viewing.)
The Teacher Voice Network program is carefully designed to develop the competencies of great teachers, providing them with tools to engage their colleagues and generate solutions to education challenges. To date, participants have met with state and federal legislators, attended regional and national educator convenings and been featured in several publications.
NC Teacher Voice Network leaders are teachers or instructional coaches who remain in their schools full-time and contribute 10-15 hours each month to Hope Street Group activities including data collections, professional learning sessions and partner meetings. They receive a $3,000 stipend for the 12-month fellowship, with the opportunity to extend into a second year to deepen their work.
