Total Teacher Project Announces Personal and Leadership Training for Teachers “Influence, Imagine, and Inspire”


Providence, R.I. May 29, 2018-- The Total Teacher Project (TTP), a non-profit organization of educators, parents, and students, is conducting a personal professional development day, Teacher Leadership Summit 2018, on August 20th at Bryant University, Smithfield, R.I., from 8:00 a.m.- 3:00 p.m. Experts in personal and leadership development will present at the event, which is planned as an interactive experience that will build camaraderie among teachers and help them to maximize their leadership potential. The event is being sponsored by the generous support of Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk, Navigant Credit Union, and Bryant University.

“We are pleased to offer this event to enable teachers to see themselves as the leaders they are and to appreciate the important role they have in modeling leadership for their students,” said Ellyn Metcalf, founder of TTP. “This is an opportunity for teachers to hear from experts about how to continue their personal development journey, so they in turn can continue to grow students to their full potential.” Metcalf, a former middle school science teacher, has over 25 years of experience in leadership development with the United States Coast Guard. Over 120 teachers from RI, MA, and CT attended last year’s event.

At Teacher Leadership Summit 2018 participants will:
