Become a more authentic educator by applying your personal values in your professional life!

Teachers and administrators can achieve professional growth by discovering who they are on the inside and using that knowledge to effectively meet challenges on the outside.

Developed through the authors' extensive experience, this insightful resource presents a comprehensive model for fostering reflection, exploration, and action. The authors synthesize the work of great thinkers in education, including Michael Fullan, Parker J. Palmer, Thomas J. Sergiovanni, Lee G. Bolman, Terrence E. Deal, Robert Nash, and Peter M. Senge, and help educators:

  • View professional challenges as opportunities to learn and grow
  • Act with greater conviction and confidence
  • Celebrate accomplishments

Teaching and Leading From the Inside Out provides vignettes, questions, and practical strategies for implementing individual and schoolwide practices to connect internal beliefs and aspirations to external action.
