Empowering Elementary School Teachers through Awareness and Training.
Piehota, Lisa D.
This practicum was designed to increase the level of teacher awareness of the concept of empowerment at an elementary school in the rural Southeast. A 12-week program was developed and implemented to train the school's 32 teachers in team building, conflict resolution, communication skills, team dynamics, and facilitative leadership. Weekly meetings were designed to impart these skills and to develop a school improvement plan to address school management issues and problems identified by the teachers themselves. An average of 14 teachers attended the weekly sessions, with attendance higher in the early weeks and lower in the later weeks of the program. A post-program survey indicated that although overall teacher response to the training was favorable, it was not as positive as initially anticipated. An appendix contains a copy of the teacher survey. (Contains 14 references.) (MDM)
