The New Jersey Teacher Leader Network (NJTLN) was established by the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) so that its members could collaborate around a shared mission of developing teacher leaders to positively impact student outcomes.
The NJTLN exchanges ideas, shares materials, and provides support to the organizations within its network, along with other educators across New Jersey invested in developing teacher leadership.
The NJTLN comprises representatives of the various entities that are allowed to be providers of the teacher leader endorsement — specifically institutes of higher education, education organizations, nonprofit entities, including school districts, and a combination of these entities.
It is important to note, however, that organizations within the Teacher Leader Network are not required to pursue the path of being an approved program provider for the Teacher Leader Endorsement. The purpose of the network is to support organizations who believe in building strong, sustainable teacher leadership with the option of utilizing the Teacher Leader Endorsement as a catalyst for reaching this goal.
