Visit to become a member.

“This interactive professional learning community will focus on how teacher leaders can effect change in STEM education,” said Joni Falk, Principal Investigator of this effort. “We’ve already heard from many teacher leaders who are excited that this network will enable them to explore new leadership paths and opportunities, connect to leaders across the country, and find relevant resources and upcoming events for their continued professional growth.”

The free membership will provide access to networking tools, resources, and interactive online events throughout the year to explore topics related to STEM teacher leadership. Members will share their leadership paths, challenges, strategies, resources, upcoming opportunities, and events with each other.

Each month, the site will explore a theme related to teacher leadership. Each theme will have an online, interactive expert panel; related resources; a blog; and a month-long facilitated discussion. Last month’s theme was “Leading Without Leaving the Classroom”; a video of the event is available at  The theme of this month’s webinar and discussion is “America’s Strategy for STEM Education–Why it is Relevant to STEM Leaders.” See to view a video of the informative January 8 webinar.
