Teachers acts as resource providers as they share their instructional material with their colleagues such as readings, websites and books to instruct the students. The resources of teachers which they share with colleagues can be unit plans, assessment tools and articles etc. Teachers can act as instructional specialists with that they can help their colleagues with the effective teaching strategies for implementation and even strategies for research-based classrooms. This includes exploring instructional methodologies in consultation with the colleagues which are beneficial for the school and the students (Kim, 2006). They also act as curriculum specialist through their better understanding of the standards of the content chosen for instructions to students, linking of the various components together to form productive subject matter and planning an assessment format for ensuring the implementation of the consistent curriculum in the school.
Teachers help the new teachers in settling down in the environment of the school and provide them advice on the instructional tools, curriculum, practices and procedures being followed in the school. Teachers as mentors bear a great responsibility and expertise with great amount of time in preparing responsible students and fellow teachers (Dowling, 2003). Teachers are also catalysts for change as they are seen as visionaries who are never limited with status quo rather they always find out better ways for making the future of students bright and even making their profession more efficient and effective. Teachers as change agents are confident with their own works and are strongly committed for the continuous improvement process. They continuously pose questions on themselves for generating effective techniques that can make the learning process of students better.
