Leading Educators offers two distinct pathways to school impact and systemic change, the Leading Educators Fellowship and Leading Educators Strategic Support Initiatives.


The Fellowship

The national Leading Educators Fellowship is a rigorous two-year participant experience designed to develop core competencies in four vital areas: Core Beliefs and Mindsets, Management of Self and Others, Cultural Leadership, and Instructional Leadership. Through formal training, intensive support, and excellent school visit trips, this pathway leads to more effective school impact by increasing student learning through teams led by highly skilled teacher-leaders. This goal of the Fellowship is to decrease teacher attrition in high-needs schools and contribute to robust systems for impact at scale. More >


Strategic Support Initiatives

Leading Educators Strategic Support Initiatives (SSI) provide customized teacher leadership development consulting to districts, charter management organizations (CMOs), schools, and non-profit organizations to leverage teacher leadership to increase student achievement. This contract-based work may include delivery of training modules; recruitment, selection, and retention consulting; train-the-trainer projects; and evaluation consulting. More >


"I am confident that Leading Educators helped prepare me to take on a leadership position in my school and provided me with the time, training, and tools to drive student achievement and staff development in my school."
