    Congrats! In my district the lead teacher is mainly a disciplinarian, what will it involve for you?

    Not a disciplinarian (whew!). At my school, the lead teachers:
    - attend monthly meetings with administration to discuss initiatives, policies, concerns
    - chair a monthly meeting with the teachers in the division to conduct some PD, discuss school and division initiatives and concerns
    - coordinate the ordering of textbooks
    - coordinate special events
    - source and share resources
    - maintain a calendar of division events
    - represent the school at two Literacy conferences (yay!)
    - provide training and advice when required
    - take the "flak" when anything goes wrong :p

    Those sound like really great things to be involved with. Way better than what lead teachers at my school get to do! Though it can't be all bad for them as it's a rather low turnover position.

    Congrats again, I'm sure you;ll be awesome in this new role.
