Master of Education Leadership Development for Educators (LEDE) The LEDE program is a new principal preparation program offered by UW Bothell in partnership with several school districts, the Center for Strengthening the Teaching Profession, and the Center for Educational Leadership. The program supports teacher instructional leaders and helps them document their learning so that it contributes to requirements for a masters degree and state residency principal certification.
A Principal Preparation Program that Honors Your Work as a Teacher Leader
Many of the instructional leadership skills that are so central to principal success are developed over time as teachers take on challenging responsibilities in their schools. This is especially so as teacher leaders support teaching and learning beyond their classrooms.
This understanding is the foundation for our principal preparation program that UW Bothell offers in partnership with a number of regional school districts, the Center for Strengthening the Teaching Profession, and the UW Center for Educational Leadership.
With new thinking about how to coordinate teachers’ on-the-job learning and university preparation, the program supports teacher instructional leaders and helps them document their learning so that it contributes to requirements for both the Master of Education degree and the Residency Administrator (Principal-Certification).
