What We Do
The Teacher Leadership for School Improvement (TLSI) program is designed to empower teachers by enhancing their knowledge, skills, and dispositions in the areas of teaching, research, leadership, and advocacy.
TLSI is an award-winning, job-embedded online program for full-time practicing PK-12 educators. The curriculum constantly adapts to and includes new research and best practices to meet the needs of students and communities that our talented graduate students serve. Through this program, a full-time practicing educator may choose to earn a Master in Education (M. Ed.) or Specialist in Education (Ed.S.) in Curriculum & Instruction.
Throughout the TLSI program, educators document evidence of their growth in instructional expertise, practitioner research, and teacher leadership as they implement what they are learning in coursework.
