A group of "teacherpreneurs" recently gathered for a panel discussion in which they were asked how they balance their roles as full-time teachers and leaders beyond their classrooms -- and the ways those roles benefit students. In this blog post, panel participant Ariel Sacks writes that she often engages her own students in policy discussions to help them become engaged citizens. She writes that one teacher plans student-led projects during his absences, while another teacher-leader reports returning to the classroom with many ideas that benefit his students.
