he Teacher Leadership program is a school leadership program intended for classroom teachers who seek greater responsibility and influence beyond their individual classrooms. The program will provide the candidate with the knowledge and skills required for leadership roles from perspectives not usually afforded in traditional classroom teacher training programs.

Teacher leaders are educators who use their expertise to improve student learning by working outside the classroom in formal and informal ways to augment the professional skills of colleagues, to strengthen the culture of the school, and to improve the quality of instruction (Council of Chief State School Officers, 2009).Our M.Ed. in Teacher Leadership is an approved program.

The GACE in Teacher Leadership is ready. Our completers can take the test and if they meet the qualifying score, the Augusta University COE can recommend them for S-5. This is the bridge or conversion process that the Augusta University COE submitted to the PSC last fall in our program review.Anyone who completes the Teacher Leadership degree before the test is completed, can take the test once it is available. If the completer is successful on the test, then the Augusta University COE can review their previously completed degree and recommend a conversion of the T-5 to an S-5.
