Our first task within LF Academy was to articulate a problem of practice within my educational community. As a high school teacher, I knew that the impact I could have on this problem was in a different capacity than most Learning Forward Academy members due to the fact that I was the only teacher in this graduating class. This was entirely daunting in the early sessions of the experience. However through learning about institutional change and professional learning practices, I realized that my position as a ‘teacher-leader’ truly placed me in the ‘front-line’ of implementing change.
