Overview

Becoming an Integrated Educational Leader is a must-read for current K-12 educators, preparing and current teachers who want to be leaders in their schools and communities. This powerful book provides insights into gaining a better understanding of our educational system and how this has affected our current status through political and cultural events of our past, as well as understanding critical pedagogy that supports learners in this system. It also describes a better understanding of the physical and emotional blockades experienced by educators and how to be a complete leader. Michelle Rosser, an activist in educational change and relational theory development, and Tom Massey, a corporate trainer and performance coach, team up to deliver uplifting and honest truths to educators that will not only effectively communicate important tools for teaching, but also enlighten the individual to discover the powerful influence they possess as educators.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
«This important work on leadership and education is less about what teachers ought to do and more about what teachers can do to grow personally and professionally and to engage their students more effectively and holistically. The text is replete with helpful strategies to create a positive learning environment while also focusing on the well-being of the educator. The weave of important theories, practical suggestions, research data, relevant facts, trends, policies and issues makes the book both scholarly and applicable to everyday life.» (Tim Davidson, Associate Professor and Graduate Liaison, University of Oklahoma)
«As an educator for over 40 years, I have seen the latest come, go, and simply change names. But Becoming an Integrated Educational Leader addresses an area that needs our attention. Teachers, lead not only in their classrooms, but also in their schools and communities, and can have a wonderfully positive impact on all. This book addresses something new and can help educators become those leaders.» (Debby Stine, retired educator)
«Becoming an Educational Leader is very encouraging and shares many leadership phases, which are important to support an educator to cultivate their leadership and development roles in the classroom.» (Michael Marticek, Doctor of Business Administration, Certified Six Sigma Green Belt)

If you aspire to become a great educator, you need Becoming an Integrated Educational Leader.» (Eric Klein, Department Chair, College of Health, Human Services, and Science, Ashford University)
