Leadership development is a top priority for many organizations, and that’s why it is a pleasure to highlight February as the first KDP Leadership Month. There are many events planned for Leadership Month to build our members’ potential to be teacher leaders, including regional iLead events, Teach to Lead programs and summits, and travel scholarships with People to People.
In honor of Leadership Month members of the Chapter Services team wanted to share their favorite quotes on leadership to encourage you in your teaching journey.

As a teacher, are you in your role because it’s just a great position to have, or is it because influencing the lives of children in your community is your passion? While it can be both, we know that you are dedicated to teaching because of your passion for others, and that is what makes YOU a great leader of today. It’s time for the great leaders of the world—our teachers and KDP members—to stand together and continue to positively influence the lives of our children for the sake of humanity. We cannot thank you enough for the passion you bring to the field and the daily impact that you have.
Chris Beaman, Assistant Director of Chapter Services and Membership
At KDP we believe every member is a leader. Use February as an opportunity to re-focus your chapter’s executive officers or build on your personal skills. How could you better develop your skills during KDP Leadership Month?
