My Own Teacher Leader Manifesto

April 10, 2015 by Bill Ivey

Nothing like the simple title “My Teacher Leader Manifesto” to catch my attention, especially if the author was my friend Sandy Merz. I clicked on the link, read, “Teacher is the pinnacle title of civilization because teaching is society’s foundational activity,” and was hooked. Sandy went on to enumerate the governing principles by which he tries to live when speaking from his position of experienced teacher and leader in the profession, and then invited other people to join in. I deliberately skimmed past his list so it wouldn’t unduly influence me, and decided to take him up on his challenge.
