Mirror Images: New Reflections on Teacher Leadership
Reason, Casey; Reason, Clair
What inspires teachers to see themselves as leaders? "Mirror Images" takes a comprehensive look at what teacher leadership means today and how teachers can transform the future of their profession. Included are ten iconic images of teacher leadership roles to help teachers move beyond teaching as they were taught. The authors make a compelling case for the importance of teacher leadership today, based on these current conditions: (1) Top-down change is less effective today than ever; (2) Teacher leadership in schools is a force, not a position; (3) Old stereotypes of teaching keep teachers from striving for more; and (4) Leadership, learning, and change are united. This book challenges you to avoid simply becoming a replica of teachers you have seen in the past. Instead, embrace your own vision for what is possible and become the teacher leader you were destined to be. An index is included.
