This application is open to all practicing Washington K-12 teachers and support staff. Teachers who fulfill all program requirements are eligible to receive a stipend of $1,500, plus travel reimbursement to and from the Kickoff Event on Saturday, January 26 in Renton.
In years past, teachers have applied to be either a Blogger or a Tweeter. For 2019, we are combining those roles into one, so each of the 12 Teacher Leaders will be responsible for both blogging and tweeting. Teacher Leaders will alternate between blogging one month and tweeting the next month.
Before applying, please also review these responsibilities:
- Attend CORElaborate 2019 Kickoff Event on Saturday, January 26 at Puget Sound ESD in Renton (this is a must-attend).
- Write one blog post every other month about your classroom practice, instructional shifts, and share professional learning related to career and college readiness, Washington State K-12 Learning Standards, including English, math, and science, and the Smarter Balanced assessments.
- Promote and participate in monthly Twitter chats (second Sunday of every month in the evening) during non-blogging months. Teacher Leaders are encouraged, but not required, to participate in ALL Twitter Chats, not just during non-blogging months.
- Engage regularly with other Teacher Leaders through Slack, Twitter, commenting on blog posts, and joining bi-monthly online video chats.
