Teachers are leaders because they empower students to go to a place they have never been before and do things they have never done before. In order for students to be able to do these things, teachers equip students with tools they need to be successful. Each student enters the classroom with certain gifts and abilities. Great teachers (leaders) work as multipliers helping students to develop these gifts and abilities so that they can chase their vision of success. In this episode of The Marvin Byrd Show, I break down this leadership principle and talk about how teachers can be multipliers in the classroom.
