A team of teachers and administrators from the district attended the Teach to Lead conference at the Tilles Center on Jan. 12. Teach to Lead is an initiative jointly convened by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development and the U.S. Department of Education. The program’s mission is to advance student outcomes by expanding opportunities for teacher leadership, which is achieved by providing resources, facilitating stakeholder consultation, and encouraging professional collaborations to develop and amplify the work of teacher leaders. Fifth-grade teacher Marguerite Izzo was one of the presenters and "critical friends" of the event. Others who attended from Malverne included Rachel Gross, Marie Dalton, Katie Smythe, Marguerite Robles and Assistant Superintendent Steven Gilhuley.
