Abstract: Lakoff and Johnson (l980) claimed that most thought was metaphorical and that it was "pervasive in everyday life" (p.3). Norton, Webb, Dlugosh, and Sybouts (l996) claim that "metaphors can be used to 'cut through the fog' when ordinary descriptors seem to fall short of the meaning that is required" (p.62). Ivie (2003) stated that the use of metaphor was widely applied in the field of education, and Greenlee (2007) recommended that educational leadership instructors apply the use of metaphor as an instructional tool to develop meta-cognition in the education of school leaders.
