The Next Step: A Hybrid Teaching Role
Zeichner, Noah
Educational Horizons, v91 n3 p13-15 Feb-Mar 2013
The conventional wisdom -- and a reality for many -- is that one can advance only by becoming an administrator, pursuing a coaching position, or taking a job in the central office; which often means moving away from the students teachers entered the profession to serve. Fortunately, new career paths are emerging for teachers, and they can advance their career without leaving the classroom. The author of this article, a Seattle teacher, tells how he made it happen to inspire those who may want to play an active role in major educational changes while keeping one foot in the classroom. He describes how he advocated to become a hybrid teacher and suggests that the future of hybrid roles may lie in "teacherpreneurs."
