A Ladder to Leadership: Ohio Steps up to Strengthen Teachers' Collaboration and Coaching Skills
Hohenbrink, JoAnn; Stauffer, Marlissa; Zigler, Ted; Uhlenhake, Angela
Journal of Staff Development, v32 n3 p42-44 Jun 2011
The move toward teacher leadership is one answer to the dilemma of school leadership. The task of school leadership has become too complex and demanding for one person. Nurturing teacher leaders helps districts strengthen school leadership, aids in teacher retention, and sustains school reform. This need for more teacher involvement in leadership led to the creation of a five-state consortium (Kentucky, Kansas, Alabama, Delaware, and Ohio) facilitated by Joseph Murphy of Vanderbilt University to explore, define, and develop courses to prepare teacher leaders. With Ohio's new teacher career lattice that includes teacher leader as one of the top tiers, teacher leadership is in the spotlight at district and state levels.
