The authors of Leadership Development for Educators rightfully identify the crucial role leadership skills can play in effective teaching and expose the sad reality that the teaching of such skills is largely ignored in the training of young teachers. This unique and insightful book is worthy of the time and attention of everyone who cares about education in this country. -- Betty J. Ross, public school teacher for twenty-three years at Powell Middle School, Littleton, Colorado
Leadership Development for Educators acknowledges the key leadership role that librarians play in working with teachers and students in schools. This book could help all librarians increase their ability to assist in a quality learning experience. -- Nancy Bolt, former state librarian, Colorado
By following the approaches in this book, teachers will achieve superior results in the classroom, in their school, and in their lives in the greater community! -- Diane Anderson, elementary principal, Boulder Country Day School, Colorado
I can see using this book in the leadership training we give to our instructional coaches, our instructional leaders, our teachers on special assignment, and our teachers who aspire to be administrators. The mix of concrete activities and theory, concisely summarized, makes this book useful as a training tool. -- Cynthia M. Stevenson, superintendent, Jefferson County Public Schools, Colorado
Leadership Development for Educators does a masterful job of providing a concise framework for educators to follow in their quest to provide each student a quality education. I have attended literally hundreds of meetings, many ending in complete chaos, addressing my three special needs children. I will never again engage in an out-of-control meeting. I now have a tool to present to the educational team thanks to this great book. -- Sharon Edelen, mother of three special needs children
This book is both a call to action for anyone who wants to contribute to improving educational systems and a practical manual for doing just that. Teachers and those supporting them will need to be bold risk-takers as they engage in the practices informed by the learning activities so well incorporated in this book. What a great resource for organizing and synthesizing all the excellent work out there on leadership-love the appendix! -- Ginger Hopkins, vice president, Northwest Evaluation Association; public school teacher and administrator for twenty years
Teachers have to be leaders immediately upon the start of school to maintain a classroom that is safe and effective for learning. I believe Leadership Development for Educators provides an extra set of tools for making this happen. -- Margaret Obal, elementary school teacher, Virginia
