Why I Want to Be a Teacher Leader
Reid, LaNaye
Journal of Staff Development, v32 n3 p52-54 Jun 2011
If someone had asked this author five years ago whether she would ever envision herself as a teacher leader, her answer would have been an emphatic "no." Her passion is for teaching and learning. She did not have the desire or the temperament to administrate others. However, as educational transformation began in her district and on her campus, she began to see the role of teacher leader transform as well. This role was no longer an extension of a larger bureaucracy, but was becoming that of a facilitator among a group of professionals who held a shared vision. In this article, the author sees the shifting leadership landscape as an opportunity to lead her peers into the future.
