Danielson describes some teacher characteristics that should be taken into account by principals interested in fostering teacher leadership. She then discusses the critical role school administrators play in developing teacher leaders and the skills they will need. Her primary focus is on ways in which teacher leaders can be directed toward improving the school. In particular, when teacher leaders engage with families and the community, they deepen their impact on students and their learning. Intentional and frequent outreach can also lead to increased interactions among colleagues, families, and the larger community by serving as a model of effective collaboration and communication.
