Building teacher leadership capacity can be accomplished through several means, including structural, cultural, or relational approaches. A traditional shift in school organizations must include building teachers’ leadership capacity. To support teacher leaders’ growth and advancement as leaders, administrators must design, assign, and implement professional learning that will allow teachers to reflect on their respective leadership qualities. Leaders play a role in the culture of corporate and academic organizations, and culture is at the forefront of exemplary performance of both entities. Therefore, administrator and teacher leaders must view culture as a priority and understand that culture is a product of school leadership.
