Learn how to expand teachers’ leadership roles and responsibilities and give teacher leaders in your school new and increased importance in improving classroom instruction and student achievement.

We will examine ways on how to: assure that there is no role ambiguity or conflict between the principal and teacher leaders; help teacher leaders win acceptance in their role by peers; enable teacher leaders to find time and avoid overload; recognize and reward teacher leaders; and protect teacher leaders from being seen as principal pets.
