"Teacher Leader Stories is a great gift to those who believe that no serious educational reform will take hold until teachers have a genuine voice in determining what matters. It's a book for veteran teacher leaders, those who aspire to leadership in schools and classrooms, and administrators eager to tap the expertise of the accomplished teachers they work with. This is a book that doesn't shy away from difficult issues."

"The cases presented in this book have an honesty that portrays the real complexity of teaching and leading. The dilemmas in each case include a diverse cast of characters, each with perspectives that cannot been easily labeled as 'right' or 'wrong'. That setting challenges the reader to rethink their own position and appreciate positions different than their own."
Carolyn Landel, Chief Program Officer
Washington STEM, Seattle, WA
"This articulate and compelling book provides a powerful way for educators - especially teacher leaders and staff developers - to move their practice to the next level. The author brilliantly scaffold their reader's engagement in the material, from analyzing others' cases to writing, sharing, and reflecting on their own."
