Collay, Michelle
Educational Leadership and Administration: Teaching and Program Development, v18 p131-146 Fall 2006
This essay reviews the powerful influence of professional identity in shaping how school leaders perceive their work. I review factors that mold teacher professional identity, implications for educational leadership pedagogy, and supports and barriers for teacher leaders to consider in their quest to more fully enact bold, socially responsible leadership. Looking at leadership as a calling or vocation offers an opportunity to examine the role professional identity in the context of teacher leadership.
