Course Format

This course will be delivered in weekly live, 3-hour interactive learning sessions conducted online in Zoom. Attend live sessions with facilitators and fellow participants; learn and practice new skills both in session and in your own context between sessions. Participants receive electronic versions of all resources and tools.

We are intensely focused on humanizing our virtual spaces. We focus on interactivity and connection (these training courses are not webinars), frequent screen and body breaks, and attending to learning, practice, and healing in community with people across the country.

Course Description

As participants in our Black Teacher Leadership and Sustainability Institute (BTLSI), Black teachers and educators will deepen commitment and agency in their work while developing strategies for leadership and sustainability. Attendees will virtually receive caring guidance and facilitation to collaboratively explore the personal and professional challenges they face as Black school-based educators. Through this experience, participants will have an opportunity to share, reflect, and set intentions for how to lead and thrive as Black educators in their different contexts. This Black affinity professional development offering provides a space to build community with and learn from Black teachers and educators from across the country.

Participants will learn, examine and discover:

  • Frameworks and protocols that foster equity-centered teaching, learning, and leadership
  • The implicit and explicit work of Black teachers in the United States
  • How to navigate individual and organizational dynamics that impede the development and sustainability of Black teachers
  • Deepened understanding of socio-political contexts and how racial oppression effects education policies and practice. We believe working toward liberation means understanding how oppression plays out!
  • The importance of emotional intelligence and wellness for Black teachers in schools
  • Concrete skills for health, wellness, and leadership in challenging contexts
  • Research, strategies, and tools to support the leadership and sustainability of Black teachers in an oppressive system

Who Should Attend

Black teachers and educators working in district, charter, private and independent TK-12 schools who are able to attend the full course.

We encourage prospective attendees to reach out to principals/administration to request use of professional development funds to pay the registration fee; we do not expect Black teachers to personally pay for this offering. Despite COVID-19 school budget implications, many schools still have professional development funds available. We know that teachers are sometimes not aware of PD funds or are hesitant to ask, so we encourage you to advocate for yourself and your leadership development by learning your school's process of accessing funding. Click here for sample language to ask for funding support.

We also have 20 full scholarships available for district, charter, and private school teachers who are not able to secure professional development funding. Please note that scholarship recipients will be asked to pay a $50.00 deposit that will be reimbursed after your full participation in this event. We are requesting this deposit fee to help ensure maximization of scholarship resources. Click here to access the scholarship application.

Registration & Payment

You will receive a password-protected Zoom link and any other pre-reads and resources prior to the meeting via email.

Registration by credit card on Eventbrite is our preferred method. We are a small (but mighty) organization and processing and collecting check payments for our events has a high administrative impact.

Please visit our registration page on our website for information on paying by check or purchase order and our cancellation and registration transfer policy. Please be sure to reference the registration form specifically for Black Teacher Project events.
