What Reviewers Are Saying

"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 and Founder of Educational Leaders Without Borders

“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 leaders 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, NNSTOY

“This Second Edition of Experiencing Dewey expands and strengthens an already highly useful text. The Breaults have once again extended Dewey’s legacy by inviting new authors to reimagine contemporary challenges in light of Dewey’s work. This text will no doubt help new and seasoned Dewey readers alike to connect Dewey’s work to the myriad problems we face today.”—Wesley Null, Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education, Baylor University

“As a teacher educator and former public school teacher, I still find Dewey’s work both formative and transformative. This book reminds us of Dewey’s profound impact on education and the need to reflect and engage in a national discourse about the value of experience in the learning process as we prepare students for the 21st Century.”—Maria Stallions, Associate Professor, Education, Roanoke University
