IPS offers multiple opportunities to teachers committed to
developing as leaders. These innovative programs serve as career pathways for
those who want to grow professionally, have impact beyond the classroom, and
amplify the teacher voice – all while continuing the critical work of classroom
instruction. 

In October, we welcomed 26 new teacher leaders in a variety
of categories. These leaders come from 21 IPS schools, serve in a variety of
roles and range from veteran teachers to those new to IPS. 

Thanks to all teacher leaders and principals for serving
this year!
