In 2012, the Maine Department of Education received funding from the U.S. Department of Education (ED), through the Teacher Incentive Fund Round 4 (TIF4 ) grant program, to support the implementation of its Maine Schools for Excellence (MSFE) initiative. In this report, the authors define teacher leadership; discuss why it is important in efforts to improve educator effectiveness and, ultimately, student outcomes; illuminate the role of teacher leadership in the MSFE theory of action; describe how teacher leaders were engaged in Maine; and highlight best practices that the MSFE project illustrates.
