Servant Teaching: An Exploration of Teacher Servant Leadership on Student Outcomes
Noland, Aaron; Richards, Keith
Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v15 n6 p16-38 Dec 2015
Servant leadership is an approach to leadership that embraces the opportunity for the leaders to embrace service to their followers. This approach to leadership puts the goals, needs, and development of "followers" ahead of those of the leader. Applying servant leadership to classroom contexts serves as an opportunity to improve education by positively impacting student learning, development, and deepening the student-centeredness of instruction. This paper examines the veracity of a servant approach to teaching by exploring its impacts on student learning, engagement, and motivation. The results of this study provide evidence that servant teaching is positively associated with student engagement and indicators of learning.
