Mentors Coaching Principals in Instructional Leadership: The Case of Rebecca and Ramon
Carver, Cynthia L.
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v13 n2 p39-46 Jun 2010
This case is told from the perspective of Rebecca, a highly skilled mentor teacher, who struggles to work effectively with Ramon, the school principal. This case focuses on the supports and resources that instructional teacher leaders can provide to their school administrators. As the case suggests, the presence of well-trained mentors presents the field with an opportunity to reconceive traditional views of leadership practice. Ultimately, the case challenges the notion that principals alone are responsible for providing instructional leadership.
