Q-TIP Lead Teacher Pool, Elementary (#688748)
Lead Teachers will be selected as model educators who help drive instructional improvement for their colleagues by maintaining a laboratory classroom, displaying exceptional results with their students, and facilitating lesson study with their peers – a teacher-led teacher improvement process through Professional Learning Communities and School Leadership Councils. These teachers will be comfortable deconstructing their effective practice into teachable segments and will be an integral part of a school’s transformation strategy. At the High School level, Q-tip teachers are either Language Arts, Mathematics, or Science teachers. Lead Teachers will be credited with all years’ experience on the salary schedule and will receive an additional $12,000 per year.
