Preparing Secondary Mathematics and Science Teacher Leaders in Rural Districts
Yow, Jan A.; Lotter, Christine; Irvin, Matt
North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education (40th, Greenville, SC, Nov 15-18, 2018)
This study examines secondary mathematics and science teacher perceptions of teacher leadership during the first year of a professional development program focused on preparing teacher leaders in rural schools. It also begins to offer details as to what content-focused teacher leadership looks like and how teachers in rural schools enact teacher leadership. Data collection includes interview and survey analysis. Findings indicate four areas of growth for participants and project staff: participants began to expand their thinking and influence beyond the classroom, advocate more for students, develop a richer understanding of what content specific teacher leadership looks like, and gain a deeper understanding that teacher leadership in rural districts may be easier given the context of smaller settings but may also be more challenging in terms of teacher burnout.
