Course Description

This course is designed to provide teachers with the knowledge, skills, and practical strategies necessary to lead in today’s diverse and dynamic educational environment. It aims to cultivate leadership potential in every educator.  Designed for teachers, counselors, and administrators, this course empowers individuals to demonstrate exemplary leadership in various domains, including instruction, policy, professional development, and association.  Through engaging in a personally meaningful project or initiative within their own school, organization, state, or national level, participants will develop and refine their leadership capabilities while making a tangible impact on the educational community.  Participants benefit from deep discussions about culture, social justice, culturally responsive teaching, and positive management in the classroom.
