Definition of Teacher Leadership:
Teacher leaders transform their classrooms, schools, and profession, activating teacher growth and achieving equity and excellence for students.
The framework contains six spheres or dimensions, each describing a set of dispositions, core beliefs, knowledge base, requisite skills and unique roles for teacher leaders. While the spheres are interrelated, with each one broadening the stage for teacher leadership, it is not expected that individual teachers will fulfill every role. Rather, these six spheres suggest multiple roles for teacher leaders. Dispositions are enriched as teacher leaders work within the various spheres.
