Their plan includes providing daily opportunities teacher collaboration as well as methods for building the leadership capacity of staff in order to increase student achievement. Strategies such as these maximize the role of teacher leaders within schools to manage initiatives, create a culture of collaboration, and arrive at mutually exciting outcomes for students and staff.
