Teacher & School Leadership
The Teacher and School Leadership emphasis is designed for teachers and professional staff in B-12 (Birth to 12th grade) schools who want to develop their leadership capacities as productive change agents and supporters in schools through the promotion of continuous improvement strategies and effective administrative practices.
Professionals who enter this program are the leaders and future leaders of our schools. They come to this program from positions as teachers, school and district staff, and from positions in other state and private organizations committed to improving education and are distinguished from other educators, in part, by their willingness to take a more active role in the decision-making processes that occur at their schools.
Graduates provide leadership in their school building or program. Often times this means they become:
• lead teachers
• team leader
• curriculum developers
• department chairperson
• new teacher mentor
• special project leader
• administrative assistant
• dean of students
The Teacher and School Leadership emphasis requires the candidate to complete the Core Education Leadership program for 15 credits, four required emphasis courses for 12 credits, and 6 additional credits of their choosing.
A detailed description of the courses and additional information can be found in the course catalog.
