In this handbook, readers will find a wealth of ready-to-use information and suggestions on the roles of principals as leaders of leaders; the roles of teacher-leaders as they lead; the culture in which teacher-leaders emerge, develop, and are supported; and the function of building principals as catalysts for, and champions of, this supportive, constructive environment. Also examined are the characteristics, roles, effectiveness, and professional development of teacher-leaders; the barriers and driving forces that impact their effectiveness; and the differences and similarities between formal and informal teacher-leaders. It is the ideal handbook for current and aspiring elementary and secondary educators and leaders, teacher-leaders, and those teaching leadership or school culture course at the higher ed level.
