Yesterday was an opportunity for educators across Florida and beyond to discuss, think about, and develop a strategy for teacher leadership. This was Florida’s Teacher Leader Summit! One educator participating, Valeria Brown, captured the day via Storify; check out Valeria’s Storify which includes the full day of tweets here.

When we connected earlier with Valeria to see if we could include her Storify, she responded like all great educators, “Please share! Thanks for doing that. The more people who know, the better…” We agree! Enjoy these highlights from Valeria’s Storify:

Conversations like the ones captured in Valeria’s Storify—among high-achieving educators who are also leaders—reinforce and accelerate opportunities for making school districts great places for teachers to teach… and lead!
