Teacher and Administrator Advisory Council

The Teacher and Administrator Advisory Council is a collaborative of Chicago and Chicagoland formal teachers that lend their voice and act as a sounding board for ideas, questions, and suggestions related to Shedd’s school, teacher and student programs and resources. It also provides an opportunity for teachers to share critical educational issues and concerns where cultural organizations such as Shedd could make an impact.
