SFUSD Mathematics Teacher Leader Program Elementary & K–8 Schools
Every site, PreK-12, has a teacher leader team. Teacher Leaders work with site administrators to support ongoing collaborative planning and professional learning at their sites. Teacher Leaders foster an understanding of the development of mathematical concepts in the Core Curriculum units and pedagogical structures that support the Standards for Mathematical Practice. They receive professional development on curriculum, pedagogy, and supporting peer collaboration from the Curriculum and Instruction Department.
For the 2016–2017 school year, Teacher Leaders from every K-8 school are participating in a year-long professional development sessions based on the Learning Strand of their school's choice. Learning Strands include: Academic Discourse, Formative Assessment, Heterogeneous Instruction, and Collaborative Groupwork.
