What does it mean to be a teacher leader?

Leading is not judging. Leading is coaching, modeling, reflecting, scaffolding, risk-taking. A leader admits to not creating the wheel but rather observing openly to learn from and with others. Instead of leading to point out shortcomings, a true leader observes to find meaningful patterns that will impact the core, to empower administrators, teachers, and most importantly, students.
