Lead Educational Innovation from the Classroom
Today more than ever, the educational landscape is rapidly changing. It requires teachers willing to rise to leadership roles within their schools and districts. It requires teachers who can foster collaboration within the school and community, and understand and implement policies that impact students in K-12 classrooms, private schools, preschools, higher education, and home schooling. A Master of Education in Teacher Leadership from the University of Delaware will prepare you to excel in these environments.
The University of Delaware online Master of Education in Teacher Leadership program in the School of Education is designed for teachers who would like to assume additional leadership roles within their schools and districts such as department chair, curriculum coordinator, teacher mentor, instructional coach, and community liaison. You will develop the insights needed to better manage your classroom, improve student outcomes, and take the initiative to lead your peers to do the same.
“The confidence in myself and in the knowledge I have gained through these courses have allowed me to take on two new roles. The first role is the lead teacher on the special education committee. The second role I have been given by the administration is grade level facilitator.”
— Chelsey Merkel, M.Ed. in Teacher Leadership Graduate
