Every school relies on teachers who informally and voluntarily lead various efforts in the school.

Once again, Danielson does a nice job of making the complex seem clearer and therefore, possible.

Very practical and a quick read! Great for teachers who want to remain in the classroom. Great resources for how teachers can influence change in teams, school wide and district wide.
