The next cohort for the Teacher Leader Endorsement will open in April 2024!
Teacher Leader Endorsement
The Teacher Leader Endorsement at Metro RESA is a GaPSC approved preparation program that provides approved candidates with the coursework and related field experience required to add the Teacher Leader Endorsement to a current standard Georgia Professional Certificate. Within the year-long endorsement, candidates focus on developing peer and collegial leadership skills. Key elements of the endorsement include: promoting effective communication skills, building relationships, developing coaching skills, and broadening perspectives related to district and school leadership.
Participants complete a clinical supervision cycle, design an action research project, develop a professional growth plan, create and deliver a professional learning workshop, facilitate a professional learning team meeting, participate in local governance activities, and work with a site supervisor to better understand building leadership challenges and procedures.
