Key Takeaway #1
Cognitive Shift to consider…
• All leaders?? Really??

requires brave, bold followers

biggest impact to the wave or movement

3 paths to teacher quality
– Fire the bad teachers
– Recruit better
teachers
– Invest in the teachers
we have—and help
spread the expertise
of our most effective
ones (that’s YOU)
CERRA Teacher Forum

Teachers Learn in Bold Ways When:
Pre-service and PD programs include opportunities for
“reciprocal mentoring”
“Externships” offer chances to learn the “language” of
boundary-spanning organizations
System leaders know how to identify and support teacher
leaders
Schools carve out time and schedules so teachers can spread
their expertise
Teachers can “travel” to see and experience best policies and
practices
Teachers write and speak to public audiences
CERRA Teacher Forum
17
Barriers to teacher leadership are
removed when:
Pre-service and PD programs prepare administrators to
develop teacher leaders;
State and local policies encourage school districts to
reallocate resources and rethink curriculum in ways that
capitalize on teacher leadership;
Evaluation and compensation place a premium on
teachers who spread their expertise;
Principals are assessed and rewarded for creating school
cultures that allow for teacher leadership.
CERRA Teacher Forum

Teachers leading without leaving:
International examples
Roles that teacher leaders play in Singapore:
Lead lesson studies and action research
Conduct peer review and teaching evaluations
Organize home visits
Develop and score student assessments
Mentor new teachers
Support curricular reforms as subject-matter specialists
Build partnerships with nonprofits

reward to lead
pedagogical and
policy reforms.

The first three waves
of teacher leadership
CERRA Teacher Forum
24
First Three Waves
• Wave 1: 1940s - Grade level and
department chair or committee.
• Wave 2: 1970s - Focus on coaching and
mentoring. Not well implemented.
• Wave 3: 1990s - Professional learning
communities, but mostly top down.

Protocol for Rotating Panel
See the empty chair?
As participants on the panel respond to the
questions and you listen to their comments, you
are invited to come up and sit in the empty chair.
A panel member will then swim out of the
fishbowl , leaving another empty chair to be filled
as someone else is moved to participate.
Let’s have a conversation!

Riding the wave…
Consider two or three teacher leader roles that
would be of great benefit to your school-district
(newly created or building on existing roles).
