The most dynamic educational leaders today often are the teacher leaders working in classrooms. Throwing their classroom doors wide open to learners, peer colleagues, families, and community alike, today's teacher leaders are always on the lookout for ways to enhance their teaching practice - through the use of new technologies, through professional development, through discovering and sharing the talents of the people living in their surrounding communities.
In this new collection of stories by award-winning teacher leaders, authors Randi Stone and Prudence H. Cuper recognize the unique ways in which teachers serve as leaders within their schools and communities. The 41 stories in this volume will prove inspirational to all readers.
