Author Biography - Richard H. Ackerman

Sarah V. Mackenzie is associate professor of educational leadership at the University of Maine. She has dealt with ethical issues in education for many years, first in her own hands-on experiences as a teacher and teacher leader and now in her role as a professor of educational leadership. Her most recent book, Uncovering Teacher Leadership: Essays and Voices From the Field (Corwin, 2007), is a compilation of writing focused on the inner lives of teacher leaders. She and Richard Ackerman published an article in the May 2006 issue of Educational Leadership titled "Uncovering Teacher Leadership." In all of her work-as a teacher and a teacher of teachers and leaders-she has recognized the critical relationship between what teachers believe about their work and how successfully they perform that work.
