Abstract: This study focused on teacher leader attitudes concerning decision-making skills. Teacher leader master’s degree students were participants in this study. These experienced teachers worked toward discovering skill strengths and weaknesses, and then developed plans for improving specific skill areas that were warranted. Teachers included within the study (N=101) examined their skills for making decisions at the workplace, public and private preschools, elementary, middle/junior high, and high schools. A decision making survey was administered to the teachers, and then measures of central tendency were used for analysis. Teachers were also compared based on years of teaching experience, checking for statistical significance in decision making skills.
