Different Players, Same Team
Author:  e-lead
Format:  article
The Exemplar will be most useful for: Supporting Teacher Leaders at Your School
Teachers, parents, students, and community members all view their roles in education differently. However, as the article “Connecting Schools, Families and Communities” reveals, each person is a key player on the same team. All are working toward the same result: student achievement. Teacher leaders can take advantage of these connections in a way that positively affects students.

The teacher leader understands that family, community, and culture significantly influence educational processes and student achievement. The teacher leader can use this knowledge to promote frequent and more effective outreach with members of these groups.

The article lists strategies and suggestions for bringing diverse stakeholders together on one team. One recommendation, for example, focuses on how to successfully implement after-school programs in community schools. Teacher leaders can use these strategies as they work with other stakeholders to develop and implement various outreach programs.
