Abstract/Description

In a school setting, teachers serve as leaders as well as classroom teachers. In any school, administrators are unable to run a school without the help of others. This help often comes from classroom teachers who are supporting student needs and school needs by taking on a leadership role. The focus of this study is to examine teacher perspectives on leadership in mentoring other teachers.

The research literature states that teacher leaders are an important component in a successful school; teacher leaders must build confidence to become a leader and help administrators promote a positive learning environment for students as well as mentor and collaborate with their colleagues, taking on the formal and informal teacher leadership role (Heleterbran, 2010).

The purpose of this study is to examine teachers’ perceptions of their role as mentors for other teachers in a school setting. The participants in this study include teachers at a private elementary school. They will participate in a focus group discussion on their leadership role in mentoring other teachers.
