Nurture Hidden Talents: Transform School Culture into One That Values Teacher Expertise
Zimmerman, Diane P.
Journal of Staff Development, v35 n1 p52-55 Feb 2014
This article looks into the school culture where teacher expertise is often hidden and underused. While the media-rich culture places a high value on talent, the irony is that talent is underrated in most schools, and educators often remain silent about their hidden talents. Many school cultures are not conducive to dialogue that supports displays of teacher talent. School leaders need to pay attention to--and invest in--their most valuable asset: the cognitive capital of teachers.
