Regional Executive Director for Leading Educators

Leading Educators develops teacher-leaders in order to raise student achievement and retain talented educators in high-need schools. We aim to ensure that public education successfully trains its middle managers, thus retaining our best teachers and bolstering the pipeline of future principals.

We offer a two-year Fellowship where teacher-leaders, receive in-school coaching, engage in frequent leadership development sessions, participate in problem-solving communities, and travel to high-needs, high-impact schools in other regions to learn best practices to effectively lead teams in their schools while remaining anchored in the classroom.. Results from the 2011–2012 school year show that students of teams led by New Orleans Fellows grew 12 times more than their counterparts across the district while students of teams led by Kansas City Fellows grew 5 times more than their counterparts across the district. 

Leading Educators also offers Strategic Support Initiatives (SSI), customized teacher leadership development consulting to districts, charter management organizations (CMOs), and non-profit organizations. This contract-based work may include delivery of training modules; teacher leader recruitment, selection, and retention consulting; train-the-trainer projects; and evaluation consulting. For example, this year Leading Educators partnered with Houston Independent School District to implement a Teacher-Leader Pathways pilot for over 60 teacher-leaders across 20 schools.

Leading Educators has trained hundreds of teacher-leaders in New Orleans, Kansas City, Denver, Houston, and Washington, DC. Building on success in these regions, Leading Educators is assembling an ambitious team to expand the program nationally.
