For more than a decade, we've worked to close the missing link between student and teacher learning so opportunity knows no limits.
Learning that Changes Lives
Teaching gets more complex every day. That’s why Leading Educators provides unmatched support for teachers to learn what works and adapt it to their context, so they can nurture the brilliance in every young person.
We’re experienced educators, coaches, and designers who believe school systems can deliver real opportunity and real results with better help. Our partnerships put best practices into the hands of school-based leaders, guiding them to affirm identity and create belonging within challenging academics. True equity will come from working smarter not harder. And more importantly, from working together.
Grow Your Leadership
DC Public Schools LEAP Leader
“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.”
Superintendent at Kentwood Public Schools
“We believe that universally our students are brilliant. So, if our data doesn’t demonstrate the brilliance of our students, then the problem isn’t with the kids. The problem is with the system.”
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.”
Chicago Public Schools Principal
“I feel like this work has the possibility and the promise to allow us to impact student achievement on a much grander scale.”
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.”
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.”
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.”
Expand Access, Grow Potential
School is about more than learning academic skills. We believe it should offer every young person the chance to grow into their fullest self, inclusive of what they look like and where they come from.
That’s why we coach and train teachers to craft their lessons through a vision called Teaching for Equity. Teachers can expand access to learning by affirming students’ strengths and identities, cultivating productive learning habits, and helping them connect more deeply with others.
Realistic solutions for Complex Challenges
School systems are full of strengths, especially their people. Our job at Leading Educators is to help them see new possibilities, reach their best, and build for the future that all students deserve.
