Reflections on the new teacher leaders

Mirror Images takes a comprehensive look at what teacher leadership means today and how teachers can transform the future of their profession. Included are ten iconic images of teacher leadership roles to help teachers move beyond teaching as they were taught. The authors make a compelling case for the importance of teacher leadership today based on these current conditions:

  • Top-down change is less effective today than ever
  • Teacher leadership in schools is a force, not a position
  • Old stereotypes of teaching keep teachers from striving for more
  • Leadership, learning, and change are united

Review:

"Teachers are the heart and soul of education, and a school without teacher leaders absolutely cannot move forward. Teachers, working hand-in-hand with competent and motivated administrators, can and will make all the difference for the young learners in our schools."

 

(Mary Johnstone, Principal 2011-03-01)

"This book provides vignettes that inspire, motivate, and empower teachers to make a difference in students′ lives."

(Alice Manus, Associate Principal 2011-03-01)

"A great guide for teachers who are interested in or are currently in leadership roles. It’s a book that provides support and encouragement for teachers trying to make effective changes in their school systems."

(Kylie Lake, Primary Teacher, Specialist for literacy, math, and social emotional learning 2011-03-01)

"Many classroom teachers have aspirations that don’t include wanting to run the school as principal or assistant principal; they just want to make an important contribution towards improving education because they know they are capable. Teacher Leadership 2.0 empowers those who wish to advocate for student learning and effect positive change."

(Melanie Mares Sainz, Academic Coach 2011-03-01)

"This book demonstrates the influence committed teachers have with their students and colleagues as they become true leaders in the profession." (Charlotte Danielson, Educational Consultant 2011-03-14)

"This insightful book is packed with practical ideas and concepts that could benefit teachers and schools in hundreds of ways! This book is affirming and encouraging to all teachers: Follow the leader!" (Angie Boles, First Grade Teacher 2011-03-14)

"The perfect storm in which we find ourselves is the perfect opportunity for teachers to provide collaborative leadership, and this book describes ways in which educators can lead where they are, for the benefit of students. This book also provides a framework for teacher leaders to facilitate data-driven conversations with their colleagues. Ultimately, the research contained in this book provides an excellent framework for any district looking to capitalize on or expand the professional learning community process." (Todd Nichols, Superintendent 2011-03-14)

"As a teacher, the daily grind can leave you feeling as if you are simply a worker drone set out to follow orders given by those in charge. Mirror Images breaks that stereotype by defining the myriad of ways that teachers use their strengths to be leaders in today’s schools on a daily basis. Every teacher - rookie or veteran - can identify with at least one, if not many, of the teacher leaders defined by Dr. Reason, which empowers teachers to realize that they can individually make an impact on the way a school is run. Mirror Images is a guide book for teachers looking to use their strengths in order to make a difference in the field of education." (Jessica Beazley, Secondary Math Teacher 2011-03-31)
