Their research, together with practice in the field, has broadened the conception of the roles that educational leaders occupy to include teacher leaders—curriculum managers, instructional coaches, members of leadership teams, facilitators of professional learning communities, among others. We seek a scholar/practitioner whose work focuses on how educators improve teaching and learning by making full use of this range of leadership talent distributed across their organizations.
