I and my colleagues have focused a lot of our work on teacher networks. The work can be found at https://www.msu.edu/~kenfrank/research.htm#social or https://www.msu.edu/~kenfrank/research.htm#social_organization_of_the_school
You will also want to look at the work of Jim Spillane (Northwestern), Alan Daly (UCSD), Cynthia Coburn (Berkeley/Northwestern), Nienke Moolenaar (UCSD), Min Sun (Virginia Tech), Bill Penuel (Colardo), Peter Youngs (Virginia).
