2017 International Great Teachers Leadership Summit Held @ Lake Geneva, WI

"A Continuing Adventure in Staff Development" for 49 Years!

2017 International Great Teachers Leadership Summit Held @ Lake Geneva, WI

The primary purpose of the 2017 IGTLS was to honor the work and legacy of David Gottshall...founder of the National Great Teachers Movement. Our 4-day week together with David served as an intentional opportunity to interact with him as this is his last year leading seminars as he has done since 1970.  

The Summit’s rigid but informal structure helped facilitate the next generation of educators to CARRY the seminar - SHARE its power to innovate - ENVISION the next iteration of the Movement.

IGTLS Foundational Touchstones included:

  • The oral tradition that has been quintessential in GTM growth and sustainability…
  • The origins of both the "great" and "master" teachers concepts…
  • Seminar leadership "best practices" from international practitioners…
