Online Certificate Programs

You can be a Teacher Leader!

We all know that a classroom teacher has the most influence on the learning and experience of students. Teacher Leaders are those who take it upon themselves to continue to learn and grow and to share that learning and growth with colleagues. Teacher Leaders reflect on their practice and push themselves passionately to grow in their practice. I am so moved by the profound impact our certificate programs have had on those teachers, giving them a platform for learning, for questioning, for building their learning network and for doing all they can for their students.   

What is possible for the teachers who are in a certificate program? Beyond their own classroom, they can become the Teacher Leaders in their schools, learning with their colleagues, and participating in peer coaching. Imagine sharing new learning with the rest of the staff and creating opportunities to continue the learning together. I know that the kind of learning that happens within the certificate programs not only make that possible, but also give teachers the energy and passion to work to make a difference.

Program Details:

Each online program is made up of 3 courses lasting 10 weeks each. There is also a 1 week break in between each course, for a total length of approximately 50 weeks. The programs begin on September 10th and run through June. The 3 courses in each program cannot be taken individually, but must be taken as a unit and in the correct order.

These programs are taught entirely online and asynchronously with weekly assignments, which can be completed at any time during the week. Our custom learning management system is created to ensure the best possible learning experience for our participants.  Outstanding instructors will provide weekly feedback and practical take-aways to enhance the learning of students in the classroom.  Interact with peers from around the country and the world who are committed to their ongoing growth and improving the outcomes for their students.

These programs are not only beneficial for individual teachers in their own development, but for schools as a whole in cultivating teacher leaders who are supported in spreading knowledge and sharing with their peers.

Upon completion of the course, each participant will receive 7 CEU's for their work, an official transcript and a certificate of completion.
