Day in and day out, teachers strive to teach students to great heights. Leading Educators has their back no matter what lies ahead.
Excellent teaching takes practice. Across the country, school systems are striving—and sometimes struggling—to strengthen students’ experiences in the classroom amid systemic oppression and rapid change. Leading Educators provides unmatched support where it’s needed most so every student is ready for their next step.
We’re reinventing professional development for educators, adding the focus, structure, and frequency for teachers to bring excellent, equitable lessons to life. Every week, our partnerships guide teachers to address academics, well-being, and antiracism as equal parts of deep learning while bolstering the leadership within 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.”

“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.”
