Teacher Leadership: A Profile To Identify the Potential.
Krisko, Mary Ellen
This study examined teacher leadership as a step beyond the traditional teacher role, developing a profile of the teacher leader. Formal and informal teacher leaders responded to statements that revealed identifiable descriptors of characteristics or attributes of effective teacher leaders who lead beyond the classroom. These descriptors were examined, organized, and classified into thematic categories. Specific categories supported interpersonal skills and intrapersonal sense of self, as well as habits of mind. The findings revealed eight identifiable attributes of teacher leaders, which comprise the basic components of the teacher leader profile. The teacher leader profile identifies individuals who are creative, efficacious/effective, flexible, and lifelong learners who have a sense of humor, are willing to take responsible risks, and have good intrapersonal sense and strong interpersonal skills. Examination of the patterns identified at each developmental level suggested a gradual maturation of strength in each teacher leader attribute over the years, from the pre-college level through their teacher education and into their teaching years.
