Late last week we received word from MTS Staff Officer Danielle Fullan Kolton that the Manitoba Teachers’ Society will soon begin recruiting for 2017-2019 Teacher-Led Learning Team members. Applications for the team are due by March 10, 2017.

For anyone interested in facilitating workshops for colleagues, the Teacher-Led Learning Team (TLLT) might be just the thing! From the MTS website:

Passion, lifelong learning, experience, leadership, and creativity: What do these words have in common? They describe the work of the Teacher-Led Learning Team (TLLT). The Manitoba Teachers’ Society is seeking outstanding classroom teachers, principals, resource teachers, counsellors, clinicians, coaches, and consultants representing all grade levels and subject areas from across the province to design and deliver workshops for school and divisional professional development days.

TLLT is a two-year appointment, renewable to a maximum of six consecutive years. Successful candidates will deliver up to three workshops per year for which the Society covers leave time and associated expenses. TLLT members are required to attend training seminars and design days at McMaster House. Release time (for school days) and associated expenses are paid.

For more information, please see this this TLLT recruitment poster which will also be distributed to Council Representatives at the February 21, 2017 Council meeting. This is a great opportunity to be involved in designing and delivering relevant professional learning by teachers for teachers.
