This is the leader I will strive to be in my classroom…

leader

There is no doubt that teachers are leaders within the classroom — it is an expectation that they should be. What is variable however, is the approach to leadership that teachers take, and thus model, for their students. Traditionally, leadership in the classroom was very authoritarian. Today this style does not meet the dynamic needs of our young learners. We need to lead cooperatively and share in responsibility with our students. How will our students ever become leaders if they are forced by classroom teachers to be followers their whole lives?
