Ordinary people in the act of doing extraordinary things: Teacher as leaders in school revitalization

Dorothy Andrews
 

Abstract
 
This paper reports on research carried out in Australian schools involved in a school improvement project called IDEAS. In particular, this research, completed by the Leadership Research Institute at the University of Southern Queensland focuses on the creative and inspirational work of teachers as they engage in a process of school revitalization. The work of teachers illuminated in this study explores an emerging image of the teaching profession that recognises the work of the organization-wide influence of some teachers who lead their professional community in professional learning, culture building and the development of school wide approaches to pedagogy.
