In 2015, I oversaw publication of Untapped, the most successful report in New Leaders’ history. Untapped transformed a dry program evaluation into a compelling, public-facing report making the case that quality, job-embedded training was essential to unleashing the transformative potential of teacher leadership.
To promote the report, I partnered with the U.S. Department of Education to launch Untapped at a Teach to Lead summit in Washington, DC, with a panel discussion featuring top officials from organizations like the Center for American Progress and the National Network of State Teachers of the Year, among others. This collaboration ensured a splashy release as audience members live tweeted the conversation. By the end of the event, #Untapped was a trending topic on Twitter and more than 1,000 people had downloaded the paper.
