As a dedicated teacher, your work extends beyond the classroom. Your leadership helps make a positive impact, supporting your community's educational growth. While some educators may choose to pursue positions in administration, you want to continue teaching — and lead from the classroom.
Lewis University's Master of Education in Curriculum and Teacher Leadership is designed to prepare professional educators for leadership roles as teachers.
Teacher-leaders collaborate productively with colleagues, inspire their students and fellow educators, and influence their communities.
As a student in the Curriculum and Teacher Leadership program, you will explore topics such as:
•The critical role that classroom teachers can play in transforming education
•Research-based solutions to the issues faced by your education community
•Developing curriculum for effective classroom instruction
You will also complete 100 clinical hours, adding to your teaching experience
All teacher education programs are approved for entitlement by the Illinois State Board of Education in conjunction with the Illinois State Teacher Certification Board. In addition, the College of Education has earned NCATE (National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education) accreditation.
