Journal of School Leadership, v24 n1 p146-163 Jan 2014
This study examined the perceptions of teachers and administrators with regard to AVID (Advancement via Individual Determination) teacher leaders. The purpose was to compare whether teachers and administrators agree on the types of attributes needed for teacher leaders involved in implementing AVID as a school reform effort. Results revealed that there is agreement among teachers and among administrators regarding the importance of a teacher's personal attributes and attributes related to classroom environment. When compared to teachers, administrators generally feel that certain leadership attributes are more important, such as open communication with the principal, creative problem solving, collegiality on campus, organizational skills, and respect for other teachers.
