Teacher leadership, for me, is about taking responsibility for my own professional learning and reflecting on how I can improve my practice. It involves researching and implementing ideas, and evaluating their impact. It will help me to develop the confidence, early in my teaching career, to make changes in my classroom to impact on my learners. I hope to be able to share what I learn through the TLP with my colleagues in working groups and other informal discussions with colleagues. I hope to explore areas of my practice that I could potentially take to Masters level study.
