Service-Learning: Mentoring Leadership Skills in the Experienced Teacher
Couse, Leslie J.; Russo, H. Lindsey
Mentoring & Tutoring: Partnership in Learning, v14 n1 p33-48 Feb 2006
Growth in the field of early childhood education has placed emphasis on improving quality through leadership and teacher education. With the advancement of the early childhood field, teacher education programs are called upon to develop leaders, challenge experienced teachers and meet professional standards through advanced degree programs. Developing leadership skills in experienced teachers holds promise for diversifying educational leadership and engaging in collaborative experiences. The state of educational leadership and the changing context of teacher education, support the use of service-learning in advanced field experiences as a means to mentor experienced teachers. Reflections of three experienced female teachers who develop leadership skills in the areas of public policy/advocacy, administration and teacher education, through service-learning are analyzed. Implications for preparing advanced teachers to be leaders in the field of early childhood education are discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
