NYC Teacher Career Pathways (TCP) is a strategic approach to teacher leadership in the country’s largest school district. TCP believes that by extending opportunities for educators to lead beyond their individual classroom, teachers can be powerful levers of change for school communities. The NYC DOE and UFT gave new form to this belief through the UFT-DOE teacher contract, which establishes differentiated teacher leader roles—Model Teacher, Peer Collaborative Teacher, and Master Teacher. TCP teacher leaders serve as change agents in their school communities by partnering with their colleagues and school leaders to identify and strengthen effective instructional and policy practices as well as build innovative learning initiatives aligned with school goals.
