In the MSTL program, candidates will learn about their leadership styles, prepare to leverage the latest research to guide their educational decisions, and learn to lead with greater confidence in their classrooms and in their community. The focus of the program is on equipping participants to work with all students in an inclusive classroom setting. The MSTL program is intended to help teachers develop an understanding of and instructional skills in assuming teacher leader roles in their schools/districts. Participants of the program will earn Teacher Leader endorsement.
A key feature of this program is the integration of theory, research, and practice. Much of what is learned is immediately applicable to classroom settings as teachers investigate problems of practice and conduct action research in their own classrooms.
