Program Details

Saint Leo University offers the online Master of Education with a concentration in Instructional Leadership. This program offers an innovative approach to teacher leadership based on the Teacher Leadership Model Standards (TLMS). The national standards are intended to codify, promote, and support teacher leadership as a vehicle for transforming schools to meet the needs of 21st-century learners. Rather than serve as a comprehensive job description for teacher leaders, the Standards instead describe seven domains of leadership. Each domain is further developed and supported by a list of functions that a teacher leader who is an expert in that domain might perform.

Candidates of the Masters of Education in Instructional Leadership have the option to focus their graduate studies on reading as well as instructional leadership.  The Instructional Leadership with Reading concentration prepares learners to understand the reading process and to demonstrate mastery in increasing students’ reading performance through the prescription and utilization of appropriate strategies and materials based upon scientifically based reading research. Educators will learn to address the prevention, identification, and remediation of reading difficulties.
