This degree is premised on the belief that teachers can make a difference in their districts through personal, professional and community-level leadership. To help teachers achieve this goal, the graduate certificates in teacher leadership and the MA degree help educators develop reflective practices, content mastery and skill acquisition related to leadership in classrooms, schools and community contexts. Our working definition of teacher leadership reflects a simple vision: starting with the belief that teachers are agents of social change, who have powerful leadership capacity. We believe that teachers make a difference in the lives of children and families in a variety of contexts and by further developing leadership skills, teachers can impact classrooms and communities in transformational ways. These certificates as well as the MA in Teacher Leadership will help you to develop skills and tools to stay in the classroom with greater confidence, joy and content mastery.
