Overview

Teacher leadership is a critical component to achieving breakthrough results in school improvement. Developed from anecdotal evidence from dozens of teacher leaders and administrators, Follow the Teacher advocates that all teachers can and should take on leadership roles in their schools. It contains many stories of teacher leadership in action, staff activities to increase teacher leadership, quotes from teachers who are operating as leaders, and solutions for dilemmas teachers may encounter during their leadership journey. Follow the Teacher also focuses on system design. Within its pages is a blueprint for designing a system where teacher leadership flourishes. Principals are chiefly responsible for the effective design of the system, and this book will help them foster the conditions that will generate teacher leadership in their schools. Readers will not only be inspired by the examples of teacher leadership throughout this book, but will also understand ways that teacher leadership can be intentionally infused into a school system.
