Teacher Leadership

Impact teachers are critical to the leadership of each Impact school. From running excellent classrooms to providing feedback on systems, structures, and curriculum their voices guide each decision made.

In addition to the leadership that every Impact teacher participates in, there are further ways for Impact teachers to utilize their unique talents to lead their schools. Whether it is through working with scholars, hyping up the team for school culture, coaching a new member of the team  or leading their colleagues, Impact teachers can play key roles in the school community.

Apply today for a teacher leader role in the 2023-24 school year!

Lead Roles
