How do we boost teacher leader morale and satisfaction with their work? Authors of a new article, Leaning in on Management to Empower Teacher Leaders, published in the Journal of Education Human Resources, suggest some compelling answers. Authors Matthew Finster and Amy Lamitie of the Region 5 Comprehensive Center contend that to boost morale and satisfaction, and fulfill the promise of teacher leadership, district and school leaders need to lean in on management processes by developing and applying strategic management of human capital (SMHC) policies and practices to their teacher leadership programs.
