The Identification of Teacher Leaders through the National Board Certification Process in Mississippi Public Schools.
Waller, Edna Murphy; Klotz, Jack
This study investigated whether there were differences in the leadership behaviors of 100 Mississippi teachers who had successfully completed the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) certification process and 100 Mississippi teachers who had not completed the NBPTS certification process. All participants were sent a copy of the Leadership Practices Inventory, which evaluated their self-perceived leadership behaviors in the five dimensions of challenging the process, inspiring a shared vision, enabling others to act, modeling the way, and encouraging the heart. Analysis of data from 83 fully completed surveys indicated that the NBPTS-certified teachers scored themselves higher on all five of the dimensions of leader behavior than did the non-certified teachers. There were greater differences on the dimensions of challenging the process and inspiring a shared vision. No demographic factors appeared to influence self-perceived leader behavior.(Contains 14 tables and 46 references.) (SM)
