The online Master of Arts in Teacher Leader with a specialization in Literacy Specialist program allows teachers to become literacy coaches, reading specialists, or supervisors, in the settings of PreK-12th grades. Through the core curriculum, teachers develop knowledge, skills, and dispositions to be effective educators in their own classrooms, to enhance the professional growth of their colleagues, and to affect school-wide change. Teacher Leaders judiciously gather and analyze information and data from multiple sources; effectively identify and address students’ learning needs; critically think about how to improve teaching and learning; and cooperatively work with others within and beyond the school to help all students achieve their fullest potential.
