Finding My Way to Teacher Leadership
Melville, Kathleen
Schools: Studies in Education, v13 n1 p46-56 Spr 2016
This article recounts my experience of developing as a teacher leader in Philadelphia. When I worked at a traditional high school, a hierarchical leadership structure frustrated my attempts to foster teacher leadership among colleagues. By building networks of teachers outside my own school, I found the relationships and opportunities that helped me to grow into a confident teacher leader. I now work at a teacher-led school that values my capacity as a teacher leader and makes space for teachers to lead educational change.
