The Southeastern Teacher Leadership Center: A Program for the Development of Teacher Leaders.
Hynes, John L.; Summers, Pamela F.
In the emerging world of restructured schools, site-based management, and shared decision making, the traditional roles of teachers and administrators have become blurred. A central feature of this emerging world has been the development of the lead teacher--a person who continues to teach while at the same time accepting greater responsibility for assisting colleagues and the success of the overall school program. The exact function of teacher leaders is specific to individual districts, but in every case the teacher is required to assume a new relationship both with the school administration and with colleagues. The Southeastern Teacher Leadership Center (STLC) functions to help teachers as they assume their new roles as leaders. The center's philosophy, organizational structure, and program activities are described. The Leadership Seminar, offered at the beginning and end of the summer, with follow-up activities throughout the year, is central to the STLC's activities. This seminar has three main components: assessment, seminar workshops, and follow-up activities. The themes of the 4-day seminar and of the fifth and sixth days of follow-up sessions are outlined.
