Teacher Leaders: A Catalyst for Instructional Leadership
Pate, James L.; James, Lori; Leech, Donald
Online Submission
The concept of the principal as the sole instructional leader of a school is quickly changing. Substantial evidence from schools with successful instructional programs indicate this responsibility has been spread among many staff members. Teachers who have been trained in the functions of leadership, instruction, and student learning are becoming the norm in today's schools. These teachers become a part of the leadership team and assist the principal with the instructional leadership function. Teachers who possess leadership skills are making valuable contributions to the success of instructional programs. Fusing teacher leadership into the culture of schools can result in stronger instructional programs and improved student learning.
