Teacher leadership is not easy but it is an essential component of today's accountability driven schools. Teacher leaders can be formal or informal leaders, but their goal remains the same--maximizing student learning and improving the school culture. And who better to teach us about the obstacles, challenges, and victories of teacher leadership than teachers themselves? Krovetz and Arriaza place teachers' voices and stories at the center of this book, using these moving narratives to illustrate the key concepts of teacher leadership. The book is organized around the habits of mind of inquiry, equity, and advocacy as a means of developing effective teacher leaders. Further, the authors include information on how teacher leaders can document and sustain their growth as teacher leaders. Based on the authors' work with hundreds of teacher leaders, this essential guide is ideal for school leaders and leadership teams.
