Day in and day out, teachers strive to teach every student to great heights. No matter what lies ahead, Leading Educators has your back.
Across the country, school systems are striving—and sometimes struggling—to close gaps in opportunity that limit students’ success. Leading Educators exists to create critical capacity and support where it’s needed most.
We’re reinventing professional development for educators, taking it out of enormous auditoriums and putting it where it belongs: back in schools where educators can collaborate to bring incredible lessons to life. We partner with schools systems to build learning, conditions, and leadership that help teachers focus on what matters most so every student is ready for their next step. When we support educators, and empower them to lead other educators, we ignite exponential impact across entire school systems that changes lives.
“I feel like this work has the possibility and the promise to allow us to impact student achievement on a much grander scale.”

“There’s this recognition that all teachers deserve an opportunity to grow and that they need–and deserve–an opportunity to get better in their practice.”
Tulsa Public Schools Chief Learning Officer
“Teachers are rapidly building their knowledge both in content and the pedagogical process. [Seeing the progress] from where they self-assessed at the beginning to where they are now is exciting.”
Baltimore City Schools ED Teaching & Learning
“While high-quality curriculum has ensured a foundation for equity in our classrooms, we can now ensure, through professional learning, that the implementation is providing accelerated outcomes for each and every student in City Schools.”
“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.”
Tulsa Public Schools
“I can take you to numerous classrooms where I have seen teachers’ capacity grow exponentially and that teachers are more confident in the curriculum they’re teaching, they’re using stronger strategies in front of children. It’s not perfect, we’re still growing and developing people, but I think we’re on the right path.”
