Teachers want and deserve a leading voice in their profession.  Accomplished educators, like Teachers of the Year, thrive on staying in the classroom and taking on new roles and responsibilities centered on student growth and support of their colleagues.  Teacher leaders are among the greatest, under-tapped resources available to strengthen both practice and policy in public schools.  The NEA supports the efforts of NNSTOY in growing and promoting teacher leaders; we look forward to a strong partnership in this work.
