Build School Culture through Teacher Leadership

Photo credit:
Thank you to NAESP for publishing Build School Culture through Teacher Leadership, which highlights five practical ways in which principals can cultivate leadership in others - a Wallace Foundation principle.

Principals are accelerants of professional learning.

Principals are visionaries who raise the level of rigor.

Principals are community-builders where teachers are professional leaders and learners.

Principals are learners who practice extending and receiving help.

Principals are models of how to engage others through a strengths-based perspective.  

Principals are lead culture builders who - through shared and distributed leadership practices, promote trust open communication, transparency and collaboration among students, staff and parents.
