The Multi-Classroom Leader Just May Be the New Department Chair, Except Better

Erin Burns, a multi-classroom leader at West Charlotte High School, writes at Real Clear Ed Education the  ninth in a series of monthly pieces by teachers participating in the  Opportunity Culture initiative, a movement launched in 2011 by education policy and consulting firm  Public Impact. These Opportunity Culture models "are aimed at improving the quality of education by extending the reach of excellent teachers and their teams, to encourage teacher selectivity, increase opportunities for teachers to advance in their careers without leaving the classroom, promote on-the-job learning, and boost teacher pay -- all within regular budgets."
Teachers may have articulated brilliant lessons during meetings, but I had no idea—and definitely no authority to see—what they actually looked like behind closed doors. As their MCL, I pop in daily to see my teachers in action.
