The world is a noisy place. It’s full of voices, but what are they all for? How are they different, and how do people use their voices to be heard? Two young birds, Cay and Adlee, are going on an adventure to find out! Follow along as they explore, listen, learn, and meet new friends who use their unique voices to express themselves. Along the way, Cay and Adlee find their own voices and aspirations. We all have an important voice. What kind of voice do you have? Created by internationally recognized education leader Russ Quaglia and his daughter Cali—along with award-winning illustrator Daniel Minter—Cay and Adlee Find Their Voice supports Quaglia’s pioneering work around the importance of student voice.

Have you ever imagined yourself as a teacher leader but weren't quite sure whether you really had--or could develop--the necessary skills? Have you wondered what the first steps toward becoming a teacher leader might be, what kinds of approaches work best, and how you could overcome the inevitable challenges that come with leading your colleagues on a journey toward improvement as professionals? Authors Rebecca Mieliwocki (California and National Teacher of the Year for 2012) and Joseph Fatheree (Illinois Teacher of the Year for 2007) answer these questions and more in this engaging guide to becoming a successful teacher leader. Organized around five key tools--communication, collaboration, professional development, data, and advocacy--the book covers every aspect of what is involved in taking on leadership responsibilities.
