Teacher Leadership

Master of Education

Learn how to become a teacher leader and school or district innovator when you enroll in PennWest Edinboro's Master of Education in Teacher Leadership program.

One Of The Best Online Programs In the U.S.

PennWest Edinboro's graduate programs are consistently ranked among the nation's best online programs by U.S. News & World Report.

Why Edinboro Stands Out.

To meet the demands of a changing education system you need to be a true leader.

Today's educators must be advocates for school improvement through professional development, utilize intelligent curriculum design and data-based decision-making, and excel in community outreach, engagement and positive networking.

It's a big challenge, and PennWest Edinboro prepares educators to meet those demands through a strong curriculum that is delivered 100% online.

The programs in Educational Leadership provide opportunities for school and school-related personnel to develop their leadership style and acquire skills to lead at the classroom, building and district levels.
