What do Teacher Leaders Need from Professional Teacher Leader Programs?


This paper addresses the following claim(s):

  1. "A targeted program to prepare teacher leaders can lead to greater levels of comfort and expertise in the critical roles and responsibilities of teacher leaders.

  2. There are identifiable roles and responsibilities that Teacher Leaders need to develop in a Teacher Leader program. These roles derive from the literature on teacher leaders and from teacher leaders themselves.

  3. An effective program can help Teacher Leaders work with colleagues in Professional Learning Communities and provide professional learning and support to fellow teachers."
