I’ll be attending the National Board Academy in Arizona for the next couple days, after a working and blogging hiatus for family vacation time. This event brings together a small but powerful working group of teacher leaders and others in the field – 170 participants overall, from 30 states. We’ll beĀ focusing on teacher leadership and advocacy, advancing the NBPTS mission to promote accomplished teaching and strengthen the profession. I’ll be leading a portion of the program focused on writing for advocacy and look forward to learning from everyone in the room as well – during that session and throughout the next couple days.

You might find more updates in this blog space, or at The Standard, the group blog of NBPTS. You can also expect some Twitter-activity on the hashtag #NBCTStrong. I’ll also post some pictures on Instagram. Stay tuned!
