This program is designed for the teacher who demonstrates leadership skills and dispositions, but has no goal to become an administrator.

However, teachers are undeniably leaders, regardless of whether such skills have been specifically sought out. This course provides perspective to educators who may not be actively seeking administrative roles, but who nonetheless wish to maximize their ability to serve in a leadership role among their colleagues.
