`The authors approach the looming vacuum in school leadership from a uniquely proactive perspective. They have not only outlined a solid framework for thinking about parallel leadership, but have created a variety of experiential learning activities to use as a process for developing shared meaning and energy within the learning community as well' - Yvonne Caamal Canul, Partner Educator, Partnership for Success, Michigan State Department of Education

`Developing Teacher Leaders presents a new paradigm of teacher leadership. It is filled with remarkable concepts, rich information, and practical exercises that readers will find invaluable' - Gayle Moller, Assistant Professor, Western Carolina University, Cullowhee, North Carolina

The authors' work builds on the current research and theory of teacher leadership and places it in the broader context of leadership. The authors also put forth the idea of "parallel leadership," that is teachers and administrators collaborating to foster, develop, and support teacher leadership. The leadership exercises contained in the book give teachers and administrators further opportunities to hone their leadership capabilities.
