Discover the secrets of successful teacher leadership!
Every teacher is a leader in their own right. When teachers embrace certain dispositions, knowledge, and skills for leadership, the whole school culture is changed for the better. Whether you’re a teacher who’s ready to take on new roles or an administrator looking to develop strong leaders, this book is for you.
This practical handbook prepares teachers for leadership roles with specific how-tos for the essential skills they’ll need most: running meetings, teaching colleagues, providing feedback, conducting needs assessments, delivering effective professional development, resolving conflicts, employing technology, and more. The book features:
- Well-tested content and activities
- Reflective writing prompts
- Scenarios for discussion
- Two companion guides: one for teachers, and one for administrators
When teacher leaders work alongside school leaders, the effect on school culture is noticeable. With Every Teacher a Leader, you’ll implement that change successfully—and improve outcomes for teachers, leaders, and students.“This book makes leadership a concrete, identifiable, and learnable goal for any teacher. Furthermore, it provides resources to help nurture and leverage the leadership in one’s staff or even in oneself. Teacher leadership is necessary on every campus and in every district."

"Rather than leadership being held in the office of an administrator, this book shows how more impactful leadership actually resides in the classrooms among the teachers. Levin and Schrum lay out a clear path why teacher leadership is truly the leadership we need in our schools and how to get there."
