Intensive Inquiry Phase

The intensive phase focuses on building teacher collaboration skills that result in improved instruction. This includes teachers' capacity to engage in effective adult learning teams and their ability to use data to understand student thinking.

Transition to Teacher Leadership Phase

In the transition phase we work with teachers and the principal to identify and support emerging teacher leaders. Mills Teacher Scholars focuses on the development of the coaching and leadership skills of the teacher leaders that will grow and sustain the high quality collaboration that supports successful teaching and learning.

Sustaining Through Teacher Leadership Phase

The sustaining phase focuses on continued support for teacher leaders to plan their school site inquiry sessions and guide their colleagues' learning. The teacher leaders become leadership professionals in our cross-district Teacher Leader Network.

District Partnerships

District-wide learning initiatives require ownership and agency at all levels. With partnerships ranging from Early Childhood Education to Special Education to the English Language Learner Department, we work with district leaders in designing and implementing professional learning plans for their teams.

Other Ways to Learn With Us

In addition to our multi-phase school and district partnerships, we offer a variety of events and workshops throughout the year as well as opportunities for individual coaching for school and district leaders.
