Learn to work together toward a stronger school community!
True or false: Leaders are born, not made. Teachers are leaders in the classroom, not the school. Shatter these myths--and find a better way to maximize your school's success--by learning proven professional development skills. This indispensable guide provides straightforward concepts and applicable activities, all aimed at reinforcing your strengths and strengthening what you used to consider your weaknesses.
Teachers Working Together for School Success demonstrates how to be a leader both inside and outside the classroom, and then shows you how your leadership holds the power to improve your classroom, school, district, and off-campus life. Based on the concept that today's educators must interact with each other more than ever, Martinez presents questions, activities, and suggestions to help teachers:
- Exercise leadership influence in their relationships with co-workers
- Understand the concepts of conflict and resolution as applied to the school setting
- Judge how to effectively contribute to a team effort
- Examine their own performance and professional growth
By pooling your strengths with those of your fellow teachers, you will discover that you have all the elements necessary for organizational success.
