The following is a message from the Utah Teacher Fellows Program. Please consider taking a few minutes either today (Friday) or tomorrow (Saturday) to share your semi-anonymous (they need your school district information) thoughts on the topic of Teacher Leaders and Leadership.
Hello, fellow Utah educators and administrators-
As you have hopefully heard by now, the first cohort of the Utah Teacher Fellows Program a partnership of Hope Street Group and NNSTOY launched this summer. This teacher voice network works with the Utah State Board of Education, to make sure that classroom teacher voices are included in Utah policy decisions.
We are working to gather teacher perspectives around the topic of Teacher Leaders and Leadership. We want to make sure that opinions of licensed k-12 teachers from all regions of Utah are included in our report.
Our survey will only take a few minutes to complete and the opinions you and your colleagues share are instrumental in informing education policy here in Utah. Your responses are anonymous.
The survey is open until Saturday, October 28th:
After you take the survey, can you please share the survey link with your colleagues? If you are an administrator, could you encourage all the teachers at your school to participate? The more teachers who share their voice, the bigger the impact.
Thanks in advance!

Hello friends!! Can you believe that UCET is fast approaching? Neither can I. It's about this time of year each year that I get excited and nervous and more excited as I start to think about all of the great things that will be happening at UCET this year! This year as I'm starting to look at all of the exciting things that UCET has to offer I can't wait to join in and be a part of one the greatest conferences ever!
Recently I was in Florida attending the Future of Educational Technology Conference. This was my first time attending and I marveled at the size of the venue and how many teachers were there. I felt like a small fish in a big pond. I wandered around the conference center and I realized that I was missing the community that I feel whenever I go to UCET. I love going to UCET an catching up with old friends and meeting new friends. It is great to collaborate with teachers from the great state of Utah and see what everyone is doing to better the lives of their students. I'm reminded of the first few years I attended UCET, I was a student and I was simply amazed at how all of these teachers would come together to better education and that's all I wanted to do. They have certainly helped to shape me as an educator. Thank you! Thank you UCET attendees for creating the amazing commmunity that we all enjoy!
