Model Teacher Challenge
The Challenge encourages teachers to perform at a high level that results in consistent student achievement and entrepreneurial mindset growth. NFTE will identify the most highly-skilled, disciplined, and passionate educators who exemplify sound pedagogical content knowledge, effective classroom management strategies, data driven decisions, and a belief that an entrepreneurial mindset can change a student’s life trajectory. Challenge winners will receive monetary awards, peer recognition, and access to other leadership opportunities.
Lead Teacher and Master Educator Opportunities
Lead Teachers and Master Educators will support their NFTE teacher peers by leading quarterly Professional Learning Community sessions, providing support services, and conducting new teacher training. They also have the opportunity to present at NFTE’s National Teacher Summit. Both Lead Teachers and Master Educators will participate in an initial certification program and annual leadership development to guarantee that their service to the full teacher community is consistently excellent and aides in NFTE teacher growth and development.
