Let us introduce ourselves...
Project Shift is a non-profit organization dedicated to building a cohesive network of teacher-leaders who are committed to sharing and improving their own teaching practices. We believe that empowering teacher leaders can bring about a SHIFT in the way we design professional learning and promote educator growth. We believe that by focusing the work of teacher learning communities on the reflective analysis of teaching practices, we can bring about a SHIFT in student achievement and transform our schools.
But don't just take our word for it! Katherine Basset, Executive Director and CEO of the National Network of State Teachers of the Year, says:
Project Shift is a dynamic, teacher-led initiative to strengthen educator practice through collaboration. I applaud this effort. Using teacher-developed videos, educators will collaborate in analyzing practice. The end goal of this work is a strengthened teaching profession and increased student learning. This initiative will result in promoting collaborative practice and teacher leadership, two key tenets of the NNSTOY organization.
