Partner With Us

National Insight, Local Support

Successful change depends on context, so we situate teacher development as closely to the classroom–and students–as possible. Our teams work with partners to set a strategy that works for their needs, policy conditions, and readiness drawing from Leading Educators’ deep knowledge base.

“Districts like Oakland are often faced with the question: how effective is our teacher collaboration time to actually grow teacher capacity and student achievement? We know that the surest way to improvement is by increasing our collective efficacy, which means content PLCs are our most important lever for change. We know that [partnering]...with Leading Educators on our content cycles will be transformative for us as a district."
Abby Kerins, Oakland Unified School District

"This has been an amazing partnership with lots of new learning and professional development for stakeholders that support schools and district office staff. The relationships we've built within the LE team and our district math team have led to greater flexibility and understanding. One thing I really love about LE is their empathy as a partner. They always ask what's happening and what we need to do so that we can make adjustments on our end. No other partners do this."
