The Master of Education in Educational Leadership with a concentration in Teacher Leader: Curriculum and 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. The program's coursework and field activities are based on state and national standards and prepares teachers to become instructional leaders in their schools.
Students interested in earning a Teacher Leader Endorsement may pursue the Teacher Leader Endorsement program after the completion of a master’s degree.
