Teacher and Principal Advisory Cabinets


Learn about DESE's Teacher and Principal Advisory Cabinets and how
teachers and principals are giving input on state education policy.


Teacher advisory cabinet activity
2016-17 Teacher Cabinet Members (from left to right) Jessica Lander (Lowell High School), Chih McDermott (B.M.C. Durfee High School, Fall River) and Karene-Sean Hines (James P. Timilty Middle School, Boston) work together on a "Telling Your Story" activity.

Members of the Teacher and Principal Advisory Cabinets (TAC and PAC) share their insights, suggestions and feedback with the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to help refine current policies and inform the development of new policies and resources at the state level. The Teacher and Principal Advisory Cabinets have been informing DESE's work since 2012.

To ensure a wide range of input, DESE convenes East and Central/West branches of each cabinet. Furthermore, DESE seeks input from a diverse group of teachers and principals representing urban, suburban, and rural districts that reflect the demographics of Massachusetts' students.

2018-2019 Applications open through June 29th

We are looking for a dynamic and diverse cohort of teachers and principals for 2018-19. Complete the online application below; email educatorrecognition@doe.mass.edu with questions. Please note that current PAC/TAC members need not complete this application.
