Teacher Leaders are increasingly important in curricular and instructional leadership.  Where principals once functioned as a building’s sole instructional leader, professional learning communities comprised of principals and teacher leaders have emerged. In recent years, CASDA has been at the forefront of this movement across upstate New York through the Strengthening Teacher Leadership Effectiveness (STLE) grants. CASDA faculty members have worked with Capital Region BOCES, Herkimer BOCES and the Washington County School District Collaborative to develop the Teacher Leadership Model and provide professional development and support to both principals and classroom instructors.


Utilizing the professional learning community model, CASDA will work with teacher leaders and administrators to develop their skills in leading their instructional colleagues toward continual evolution and improvement in their craft. CASDA faculty members review cutting-edge research and engage teacher leaders in reflecting upon current and best practices. This consistent inquiry and reflection promotes a culture that values learning, ensuring that these ongoing collaborations generate greater educational opportunities and improved achievement for students.




CASDA will help your school develop a Teacher Leadership structure in which principals and teacher leaders work together to evolve curricular and instructional practice. This constant dialog will lead to the refinement of best practices and support educational opportunities for all students.
