Read a Post for Teacher Leaders or Teacher-Leaders? An Argument on Behalf of Hyphenated Hybridity

Thank your for such an enjoyable education etymology article.

I'm thinking of how compound words evolve in another area of education.

First there was "home schooling" Which became the hyphenated "home-schooling."

Finally, it was accorded its own compound word status: "homeschooling". (Although not in the AP's own compound word" "stylebook".)

It takes a long while for a concept to go from two words, to a hyphenated phrase, to a compound word.

No idea if we'll ever get to "teacherleader", but say it aloud. It has a nice ring.

Thanks again for a wonderful article with a new twist for us PD folk.
