The Teacher Leader KnowledgeBase aims to raise awareness of the teacher leader role at the district level and to support teachers aspiring to the teacher leader role through master's degree-level university programs.
Task 1: Be Aware of Standards and Certification/Licensure Guidelines
A teacher aspiring to be a teacher leader, master teacher, peer mentor, or academic coach should investigate the applicable state standards or certification/licensure guidelines associated with those leadership roles. Among the states offering such professional designation, the standards or certification/licensure guidelines may vary. Teachers considering such roles should contact the respective teacher certification agency within their state.
