We are delighted to bring you the fourth issue of the South Carolina Teacher Leadership newsletter. Our goal is to provide a collaborative resource that highlights state and district level teacher leadership activities, outlines issues related to South Carolina education, and sparks ideas among Teacher Forums.
Meet the 2019 South Carolina Teacher of the Year
