Teacher Leader Academy

The Teacher Leader Academy, established in 2015, is an intensive twelve-month program led by a faculty of renowned scholars and leading teacher practitioners from across the country. Over the course of the academy experience, highly effective and passionate teachers work with faculty to develop voice, advocacy, and agency. Teacher leaders are equipped and empowered outside of traditional frameworks and are encouraged to work in partnership with principals, parents, policymakers, and other teacher leaders. The Academy is designed to optimize human capital and assist with retaining teachers in Nevada, provide a path for personal growth and/or career advancement, and explore solutions to some of the most complex challenges in public education. Participants who complete this course receive credit towards state recertification and CUs toward CCSD’s Professional Growth Plan.
