Pathways to Teacher Leadership investigates emerging patterns in the development and effectiveness of teacher leadership.What roles do teachers pursue as they seek to lead change in their schools? What pressures and challenges do emerging leaders face? How can principals and peers support effective teacher leadership?


Teacher leaders can be key agents in building the capacity that public schools so badly need. Yet too often administrators and teachers are caught up in old ways of doing their work and fail to see what is possible. In Pathways to Teacher Leadership, Marya Levenson reveals a way forward by providing compelling cases of successful teacher leaders and a clear-eyed analysis of what it will take to realize their potential.

Marya Levenson’s new book brings fresh energy and ideas to building more creative, exciting, and successful learning communities. Her work makes it plain that she is one of us; she has lived the joys and frustrations of the classroom, and she recognizes the importance of collaboration in promoting richer ways of knowing for our students. Her meticulous research and approachable scholarship light the way for caring educators everywhere.

Marya Levenson describes the many ways teacher leaders emerge and the relationships they must have with their principals and peers. She does an excellent job of marrying practice and theory. I shared several chapters with my executive team and we had joyful conversations about how her insights validated the many experiences we had with our own teachers as we observed them grow as leaders.
— Barbara Moore Pulliam, superintendent, Greene County Schools, Georgia
