Leading Educators helps passionate people like you meet students' big dreams with excellent teaching, every day.
Take Teaching and Student Success to New Heights.
The future is changing rapidly, and it promises students new opportunities not seen by past generations. If their educators help them develop the knowledge, sense of self, care for others, and confidence to solve complex challenges, they can access opportunity and create a better world.
We exist to help school systems deliver on that promise. We leverage research on how students learn, what teachers need to excel, and how systems improve to get life-changing results.
Whether you want to adopt or enhance vetted curricula, bolster leadership, or bring an instructional vision to life, we can help.
When Teachers Learn, Students Learn.
Superintendent at Kentwood Public Schools
“In many cases, our adults in the system aren’t actually experts at professional learning because they are experts at working with kids…When we bring in partners like Leading Educators that have expertise in professional learning with an equity lens…it frees up our headspace and allows us to focus on the things we can have a sphere of influence over.”
Associate Superintendent of Acceleration Schools at Charleston County School District
“I really learned as a district person how important it is for PD to be high quality. Change has been a little bit at a time, but I can see our growth from year one to three years…After so many years in education, I’m seeing the power of high-quality instructional materials, strong PD, and an amazing team. You can get your teachers where they need to be.”
Dr. Jennifer Slanger
Director of Teaching and Learning at Wyoming Public Schools
“I continually feel supported in my partnership with LE. LE contextualizes the work so that it is relevant and meaningful for our district. Additionally, it has pushed me to be a stronger voice/leader for equity in our district.”
DC Public Schools Principal
“It is hard to think of Bancroft and Leading Educators as a partnership. The amazing team at LE has become an intricate part of the Bancroft family in such a way that we do not view them as an external entity, rather a member of our leadership team.”
North Godwin ES Teacher Leader
“Leading Educators really changed my views on equity in education, and changed my whole outlook. I really believe in reinforcing positive behavior and the social-emotional piece of teaching.”
Build Capacity Where it Counts.
No two school systems are the same, but they can all become dynamic learning organizations where all students and adults are set up to achieve greatly, together.

Expand Access, Realize Potential.
School is about more than learning academic skills. It should offer students the chance to grow into their fullest selves, inclusive of who they are and where they come from.
That’s why we coach and train teachers to approach their lessons through a vision called Teaching for Equity. Teachers can expand students’ agency and access by affirming their strengths and identities, cultivating productive learning habits, and helping them connect more deeply with others.
