The Teacher Leader M.Ed. is a program designed by Alderson Broaddus University to meet the needs of the practicing teacher seeking a graduate degree. 


Alderson Broaddus University understands that many teachers seek a graduate degree but also wish to continue working with students; these teachers do not wish to become principals, but become better teachers who can affect change, and become leaders within their school.

The Teacher Leader program prepares teacher leaders to assume roles that include, but are not limited to: mentor teacher, lead teacher, department chair, curriculum design specialist, academic coach, technology integration specialist, professional development specialist, and school improvement specialist.

The University also knows that a teacher’s time is valuable, so we designed our program to be flexible to your schedule and completely online. 

The Teacher Leader program consists of ten 3-credit hour courses delivered in synchronous and asynchronous online settings. For the full-time student, a master’s degree can be obtained in one full academic year, and for the part-time student, 2 years. All cohorts begin in the fall semester, continue through the spring semester and conclude with a capstone project during summer courses.
