Introducing the first chapter of Teacherpreneurs: Innovative Teachers Who Lead But Don't Leave, by Barnett Berry, Ann Byrd, and Alan Wieder (Jossey-Bass, 2013).
The book's premise is well-grounded and simple: For schools to help 21st-century students succeed, teachers must be transformative leaders.
It's time for a bold new brand of teacher leadership, argue authors Berry, Byrd, and Wieder. We need teacherpreneurs who both teach and lead—like the eight teachers whose stories the book explores.
