Graduate Certificate


Teacher Leadership for Student Learning Certificate

The Teacher Leadership for Student Learning Certificate is comprised of four courses. These courses consist of applied tasks designed to prepare teachers with an understanding of how they can work alongside their colleagues and principal/directors to improve student learning at their school. 

Within the certificate coursework, teachers will learn about teacher leadership as well as the skills needed to engage in and lead teacher research, coach for student learning, facilitate high quality job-embedded learning at their schools, and develop a lens of equity. This program is best suited for educators currently teaching in the pre-kindergarten through grade 12 setting.

The Teacher Leadership for Student Learning Graduate Certificate was developed with input from local school district partners, and prepares participants to meet the National Teacher Leader Model Standards and the National Staff Development Council’s Standards, now referred to as Learning Forward.
