The Arizona K12 Center invites Arizona educators to join them online for the 16th Annual Teacher Leadership Institute: Where Curiosity and Leadership Unite. Come together with hundreds of teachers from across the state for a dynamic online experience to explore how educators can be present in an inquiry stance as a way to step up and lead for equity in their schools and communities. Teacher leaders and administrators are encouraged to attend in teams or individually to develop sustainable plans to implement within their individual contexts.

After what has likely been the most challenging school year in many teachers’ careers, the Arizona K12 Center offering this summer’s 16th Annual Teacher Leadership Institute at no cost to Arizona educators to help re-energize, refuel, and unite the Arizona teacher leader community

This two-and-a-half day experience is filled with keynotes, workshop-style general sessions, engaging breakouts, and a variety of teacher leader stories from five Arizona Teacher Leader Spotlights that inspire future action of those who attend.

  • Trevor Mackenzie, inquiry practitioner and award-winning educator currently teaching at Greater Victoria School District in Victoria, Canada, and author of Inquiry Mindset and Dive into Inquiry.
  • Jaime Casap, former Google Education Evangelist and author of Our First Talk about Poverty who continues to partner and advocate for education across the country.
