A teacher leader is anyone who can lead by example. Someone who shares their thinking without making others feel inferior. It's being innovative and not being afraid to fail because you know you are carving out a trail for others to follow.
Our schools are filled with teacher leaders, many of whom don't think they are. They're the ones who are being secretly watched by their peers to see what great things are happening.
I salute those teacher leaders who aren't in it for the recognition or praise but are simply doing what's best for the greater good!
