“No matter what their title is, EVERY teacher is a leader and a role model—yet few receive adequate leadership training. Coughlan and Perez understand this, and they have created this wonderful guide to equip and empower teachers with six practices that promote and support them in their leadership work. Timely and essential!”

The Emerging Teacher Leader shows teachers how they can harness the power of leadership to be true agents of change in their classrooms, at their schools, and throughout their communities. Coughlan and Perez give us the ‘real deal’ skills that we need to be successful throughout education and our lives!”

Alex Kajitani, California Teacher of the Year, author of Owning It: Proven Strategies to Ace & Embrace Teaching

The Emerging Teacher Leader makes a heartfelt case for the truth that all teachers have the potential to be educational leaders. Both inspirational and practical, this book provides six focused practices to make the transition from classroom teacher to teacher leader. The authors’ conversational and engaging writing is akin to a colleague offering a hot beverage while providing wisdom and guidance.”

Katie McKnight, CEO and founder, Engaging Learners

“Coughlan and Perez’s excellent book, The Emerging Teacher Leader, presents a compelling case for why teacher leaders are needed in our schools today. They present concrete examples of the various roles that teacher leaders can play and offer six key components that support and develop teacher leaders. At first glance, the book resembles a workbook with exercises and questions to answer in each chapter. As a bonus, they include reproductible tools that can be downloaded from the publisher’s website. The book, however, is much more than a workbook. It is a thoroughly researched and well-documented text that connects current theory and up-to-date research to the six components for improving teacher leadership. It is an excellent resource for aspiring or practicing teacher leaders and for those who supervise them.”

Rebecca Proehl, professor emerita of educational leadership, Saint Mary’s College of California

“For anyone who wants to grow in the profession, this book is a practical resource filled with sensible nuggets sprinkled with aha moments that provides an actionable path and encourages teachers to look beyond the classroom for greater satisfaction and impact. This easy-to-read, self-help guide with space for reflection and journaling inspires self-awareness and development in the six practices suggested to emerge from isolation to teacher leadership. It is an essential manual for developing hidden talents to undertake greater dreams.”

Rosemary T. Wong, international speaker and coauthor, The First Days of School
