FIND OUT MORE
Together is always better! We are organized in a way to find common interests and patterns, and then provide ways for educators to be sharp with support and local connections.
Today’s educators are inundated with information. We listen and take seriously the decisions effecting classrooms. Reflective practice allows us to process and filter in order to keep student learning as a priority.
CHOICE IN PROFESSIONAL LEARNING
Teachers’ presence in classrooms is essential, and there is value in professional learning. We are creating web-based professional learning experiences to compliment our live workshops.
What is The Lead Learners?
The Lead Learners is a consortium of nearly 30 schools in Indiana. You may know us from our original beginnings as All Write, starting in 2000.
The consortium’s original mission was to provide professional development for writing instruction, wrapping strong arms around instructional coaches who were focused on supporting writing workshop in classrooms.
Over the years we’ve grown. Many coaches have shifted from only a writing focus to all content areas, and All Write has expanded from writing to reading to math.
In June 2018 long time director Mindy Hoffar retired. The Dekko Foundation, who lavishly inspired and funded the start up and growth of All Write, is again supporting us with a grant titled, All Write: The Next Generation. Dekko is helping us to make a smooth transition to a new director, as well as claiming a plot online. Through Dekko’s considerate grant, we have engaged in strategic planning, establishing an online presence, and transitioning leadership.
As we move forward, we are revolutionizing Hoosier education by empowering learning and sharpening educators.
