Description


Teacher leaders promote school and student
success. Administrators cannot flourish without
engaging their teacher leaders to partner with
them. As schools embrace the transition to
PARCC, they must rethink teaching and
learning.

Learn how to inspire teachers to lead in this new
era of PARCC and improve student progress
and performance.

What is teacher leadership?


Teacher leadership is the process by which
teachers, individually or collectively, influence their
colleagues, principals, and other members of the
school community to improve teaching and
learning practices with the aim of increased student
learning and achievement.

Did you know?
Teacher leadership needs to be formalized
and funded because there will be 2 million
new teachers in classrooms around North
America in the next six years, and they
need leaders in the classroom that they can
look up to and learn from as they negotiate
through their first years of teaching.

Did you also know?
When districts fail to use high-performing
teachers to support their colleagues’ growth
and development, administrators and
coaches
remain
overburdened,
and
teachers-as well as many students are left
lacking individualized support.

Research
Principals’ satisfaction with their jobs in the public schools
has decreased nine percentage points since it was last
measured in 2008. In that same period, teacher satisfaction
has dropped precipitously by 23 percentage points, including
a five-point decrease in the last year, to the lowest level it
has been in the survey in 25 years. A majority of teachers
report that they feel under great stress at least several days
a week, a significant increase from 1985 when this
was last measured.

More Research
Teachers in the US spend 80% of their work
day directly interacting with students,
compared to 60% of other industrialized
countries. That leaves them less time to
analyze data, plan instruction, and collaborate
with colleagues, all activities that research
ties to improvement in instruction and student
outcomes.
