Reviews

"This collection of nineteen scholarly writings in The Power of Teacher Leaders comes at a perfect time for our schools. The evolving educational landscape with a focus on skills and knowledge for the future truly does require teachers at the forefront as leaders. This book provides a critically comprehensive examination of teacher leadership that ensures socially just and future oriented schools for students today and in the coming decades. An imperative book for all teachers and school leaders." - Dr. Rosemary Papa, Del and Jewell Lewis Endowed Chair of Learning Centered Leadership, College of Education, Northern Arizona University

"Bond and his contributing authors offer as comprehensive a treatment of teacher leadership as I have seen in the literature. The book is unique in that the collection moves beyond the nature of teacher leadership to an exploration of the influence of teacher leadership on their students, colleagues, and broader communities. The scholarship reflects broad, comprehensive and contemporary teacher leadership issues that the scholars contributing to this volume have been studying for some time." - Michelle D. Young, UCEA Executive Director and Professor, Curry School of Education, University of Virginia

"An exciting publication and welcome addition to the literature on teacher leadership, this work represents a truly comprehensive overview of teacher leadership, from barriers, to roles, to impact. The chapters on Measuring Teacher Leadership and Impact of Teacher Leadership are particularly insightful and will help to answer the question, "Why teacher leadership?" A gem of a resource for those of us engaged in the work of amplifying the roles and voices of teacher leaders." - Katherine Bassett, CEO, National Network of State Teachers of the Year
