Preparing responsible, effective, and culturally competent educational leaders.
What You’ll Learn
You’ll study pedagogical theory as well as the most current best practices for teaching, learning, and leadership in a multicultural environment. We emphasize effective supervision and efficient utilization of school and district resources, and embrace the latest educational technologies as a means of clear communication and organization.
By the end of the program, you’ll master the use of data to analyze a school’s or district’s educational condition and be able to allocate available resources for maximum impact. You’ll think outside the box to identify and secure new resources, and you will be as committed as we are to fostering a safe, healthy environment for all school community members to learn and flourish.
