Every young person deserves to learn the knowledge and skills to make a bright future. We help their teachers deliver on that promise.
Creating real opportunity
Teachers make hundreds of choices each day that can change lives. That’s why Leading Educators provides unmatched support for teachers to excel at their craft and nurture the brilliance in every student.
We work shoulder-to-shoulder with school systems to reimagine teacher professional development, adding the focus, structure, and frequency for teachers to bring excellent and equitable lessons to life. Every week, our supports guide teachers to address academics, well-being, and antiracism as equal parts of deep learning while building the leadership and conditions across schools for exponential impact.
“I feel like this work has the possibility and the promise to allow us to impact student achievement on a much grander scale.”
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.”
DCPS 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.”
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.”
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.”
