The Teacher Leader KnowledgeBase aims to raise awareness of the teacher leader role at the district level and to support teachers aspiring to the teacher leader role through master's degree-level university programs.
Task 1: Aspire to be a Teacher Leader
A teacher aspiring to be a teacher leader, master teacher, peer mentor or academic coach should first investigate the nature of such role then assess his or her desired career path. While a leadership role may seem interesting, it may not be the best match for a teacher’s career direction. A self-assessment is an appropriate step for a teacher aspiring to a teacher leader role. This task provides resources to assist in doing so.
