Take Teaching to New Heights
We help school systems meet students' big dreams with excellent teaching in every classroom, every day. We'll help you build on strengths to go further faster.
Put a Plan Behind Your Vision, and Make It Stick.
The future is changing rapidly, but it also promises students possibilities not seen by past generations. If educators help all students develop the knowledge, sense of self, care for others, and confidence to solve complex challenges, they can access opportunity and create a better world.
Leading Educators exists to help educators and school system leaders like you 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 accelerate learning, bolster leadership, or bring a dynamic instructional vision to life, we can help.
Systemic Change is Complex. We Can Help.
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…it frees up our headspace and allows us to focus.”
Associate Superintendent of Acceleration Schools at Charleston County School District
“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.”
Former Executive Director of Teaching & Learning at Baltimore City Schools
“I think one of the hardest things when buckets of money come is that there’s usually a tie to them and a timeline. [Leading Educators gave us] the time and space to think about those priorities and keep them at the forefront of what we’re doing—not come up with 62 new priorities. My favorite thing when working with Leading Educators is there are always options.”
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.”
We Bridge Research-Based Practices & Just-In-Time Support.

Raise the Bar for Student Success.
Every young person deserves a fair chance to build the life they want. No matter who they are, where they come from, or how much money their family has, their education should prepare them for their next step and beyond.
That’s why our work focuses on access to strong core academics but also looks beyond to consider other factors that are critical to student success such as belonging, productive relationships, and connection to the real world.
