Leading Educators raises student achievement by empowering a network of teacher leaders to drive improvements in teaching and learning throughout their schools. Leading Educators equips teacher leaders with the content and pedagogy skills needed to strengthen their own instruction and the leadership skills to support and coach peer teachers to higher levels of performance as well. In partnership with schools and districts throughout the country, Leading Educators leverages research and best practices to build relevant, effective, and job-embedded systems of professional learning designed to catalyze system-wide improvements in teacher and student performance.
Since our launch in 2008, we have worked with a number of districts to strategically assess and support school transformation efforts through teacher leadership. Last year, Leading Educators’ work reached over 800 teacher leaders, who led and supported about 6,500 teachers.
