teacher calls on a student in class

Program Overview

Some people teach. Others lead. A few do both.

The Brandeis Teacher Leadership Program recognizes that the most important change agents in education are our classroom teachers. Our goal is to create a corps of classroom teacher leaders who can facilitate the professional development of teachers at every career stage and ensure that schools are places of growth and learning for both students and educators. 

Our hybrid instructional model combines rigorous face-to-face coursework, distance learning and continuous coaching throughout the program to enable emerging teacher leaders to study and practice essential leadership skills while still working full time in their schools. 

You'll discover that the Teacher Leadership Program is as rigorous as it is supportive, and reflective of the highly individualized approach and commitment to social justice that are the hallmarks of a Brandeis education.

Two options are available—a 13-month Advanced Graduate Study (AGS) credential or a 2-year EdM degree in Teacher Leadership.
