Leadership skills have been found to create improvement in different contexts. There have been many studies inquiring about the impact of leadership in different knowledge areas. Despite that, it seems as though no studies address the role of leadership skills in teachers in the classroom. This case study describes the leadership skills of three secondary English teachers and how they use those skills in the classroom. Data includes semi-structured interviews, and focus group. Findings revealed that teachers have at least four of the five specific skills indicated in the theoretical framework. Moreover, it was disclosed that teachers use their leadership skills to stimulate students to become active learners, participate and be motivated; to create a relationship of mutual understanding, to be guidance, and reinforce cooperative learning.
