What is TLFP?

The CCSU Teacher Leader Fellowship Program (TLFP) is an exciting, unique program that offers member school districts the opportunity to be part of a fellowship of teacher leaders and those who support them. Participants include Durham, North Carolina, and, in Connecticut, the following 13 school districts: Berlin, Bloomfield, Bridgeport, Bristol, Colchester, Columbia, East Lyme, Enfield, New Britain, Plainville, Stratford, State Technical High Schools, and Region #10.

The Fellowship assists:

Teachers who want to remain teachers and have an interest in effecting change beyond their classroom walls to thrive in a supportive environment that allows them to take ownership of the programs, practices, policies, and priorities that affect student learning;

Administrators who support teacher leaders to create collaborative, creative, and innovative school cultures in the service of student learning; and

Networks of Teacher Leaders and Administrators to share best practices, programs, policies, and priorities across districts to support the profession and student learning.
