Program of Study

The Master of Education in Educational Leadership with a concentration in Teacher Leader: Curriculum & Instruction is designed for teachers who want to stay in the classroom while also taking on leadership roles within the school. This program does not lead to an initial teaching license. The environment of preK-12 schools is complex and ever changing, and teachers with leadership skills are essential to shaping the environment into one in which students and teachers alike can succeed. This program, which includes standards-based coursework and field activities, prepares teachers to become instructional leaders in their schools.
