Learning to Lead, 2nd Edition: Effective Leadership Skills for Teachers of Young Children

Everyone who works with children is a teacher and a leader—whether in a center, family child care, preschool, school-age care, or any other environment involving children. This second edition of Learning to Lead, for early childhood professionals in all roles at all levels, prompts self-evaluation and personal leadership development. Learn what leadership is, how it impacts all areas of early child care and education, and how to facilitate it in others.

Combining leadership theory and practice, this accessible resource covers important topics and issues such as human development, diversity, anti-bias, work with families, and social change. New to this edition are chapters on making leadership connections in school-age care and nurturing leadership in children. Each chapter is built around a combination of theories, examples, reflective questions, and inspiring stories to help you put your ideas into action and discover the natural leader within.

"Debra Sullivan has taken very complex ideas and made them seem obvious and accessible. This is a valuable text to assist teachers in identifying their leadership skills and bring them to the decision-making tables of our profession. I recommend this book to the many Leadership Empowerment Action Project (LEAP) groups around the country and keep it close at hand in my own work."
—Margie Carter, coauthor of numerous best-selling books for early childhood professionals, including Learning Together with Young Children and The Visionary Director, Second Edition

"Learning to Lead provides an uncommon view of a common topic. In a unique way, Debra Sullivan blends her reverence for the contribution each person brings with a vast body of scientific knowledge to help each of us understand what leadership is and how to become an effective leader-no matter where we might be."
—Carol Brunson Day, president of the National Black Child Development Institute

Sullivan (educator and president/co-founder, Praxis Institute for Early Childhood) offers recommendations on leadership for anyone who works with young children, from child care providers to preschool and school-age teachers. The author combines theory and practice in this second edition and covers a number of relevant issues, including human development, diversity, anti-bias, working with families, and social change.
