Teachers as Servant Leaders
Nichols, Joe D.
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, Inc.
In today's political environment with the emphasis on testing, standards, and accountability, teachers can easily feel frustrated by the amount of time and resources left over for teaching--for guiding students not only in academics but also in character education. Educators can find themselves losing focus of what initially inspired them to teach. "Teachers as Servant Leaders" provides pre-service teachers and those currently in the profession with a renewed perspective of not just being a content expert or classroom/behavioral manager, but leaders within their own classrooms, school buildings, and local communities. Building on "Servant Leadership: A Journey into the Nature of Legitimate Power and Greatness" by Robert Greenleaf, this book applies the concept of servant leadership to the classroom teacher where the focus is on service to students, parents, colleagues, the school and community. This book contains the following chapters: (1) Introduction; (2) The Teacher as Teacher; (3) The Teacher as Leader; (4) The Teacher as Servant and Steward; (5) The Teacher as Servant Leader to Students; (6) The Teacher as Servant Leader to Parents and Families; (7) The Teacher as Servant Leader to Colleagues and the School Administration; (8) The Teacher as Servant Leader to the Community; and (9) 9 Final Thoughts and Conclusions.
