Why Teachers Make Good Learning Leaders
Edwards, Brian; Hinueber, Jesse
Journal of Staff Development, v36 n5 p26-29 Oct 2015
When teachers who deeply understand the needs of their students and colleagues lead professional learning in their schools, everyone benefits. In this article, five educators and their perspectives on teacher leadership are featured. These educators have all taught low-income urban children in elementary grades for several years, but in different parts of the United States. They hold similar views on how schools can foster the development of teacher leaders, some key ways that teachers can lead professional learning for their colleagues, and the benefits and challenges of teacher leadership.
