Micah Porter, an I-IMPACT Master Teaching Fellow, has been selected as a member of the 2015-2016 Teachers As Leaders (TAL) Class! This year’s class members are among the most dynamic and promising leaders in Gwinnett County. The TAL Board of Trustees is excited about her selection and looks forward to working with her.
TAL is an initiative for 35-40 outstanding teachers from across the Gwinnett County school district. Principals from all grade levels nominate teachers who then complete an application. A selection committee reviews the applications (blind paper screening) and selects the class from among 100+ applications. The committee strives for a diverse class of grade levels and subject areas.
TAL has quite a history of producing leaders for the Gwinnett County school district. It is a 501(c)(3) organization that just celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary. TAL is headed by Nancy Ward, Executive Director of the Gwinnett Student Leadership Team, Inc. and Teachers as Leaders, Inc.
We look forward to hearing about what Micah learns and how teachers can influence their peer to positively impact the teaching profession.
