NJEA Teacher Leader Academy


The NJEA Teacher Leader Academy is a New Jersey Department of Education approved program that leads participants to the newly developed New Jersey Teacher Leader Endorsement, which attaches to a teacher’s instructional certificate. The yearlong program emphasizes self-organizing and peer learning while preparing teachers to, “individually or collectively,  influence their colleagues, principals, and other members of school communities to improve teaching and learning practices with the aim of increased student learning” (York-Barr & Duke). Participants in the program are eligible to earn 12 graduate credits through a partnership with Thomas Edison State University.
