Commissioner's Teacher Cabinet
Apply to serve on the Education Commissioner's Teacher Cabinet
The Commissioner is creating a new opportunity for Colorado teachers to share their hands-on classroom knowledge. This advisory group will be made up of 15 teachers from around the state representing small, medium, large, rural, suburban and urban school systems.
Teacher Cabinet Members will:
- Serve as a sounding board for the implementation of state education policy.
- Brainstorm solutions for some of the challenges facing today’s educators, such as raising achievement among all students, supporting low-performing schools and increasing the number of individuals joining the teaching profession.
To be considered for the Commissioner’s Teacher Cabinet, educators must have at least three years of experience in the classroom and must submit an application, resume and two letters of recommendation to CDE by 11:59 p.m. Friday, May 5. Selected educators will serve two years on the cabinet beginning in August 2017.
Teachers will be selected by a diverse committee, including the current Teacher of the Year Sean Wybrant, the commissioner, and other external stakeholders.
