Abstract: This proposal highlights the trajectory of a graduate student from his initial teacher education program to his evolving role as a leader in educational technology. During his graduate program in instructional technology, he joined a service learning organization where he experienced a role shift from classroom teacher to highly respected technology consultant within the organization. Our argument is that graduate programs in teacher education, as well as initial teacher education programs, should provide powerful educational opportunities that help students develop into effective leaders. An instance where such opportunities have been provided is described and discussed.
