The M.S.Ed. Teacher Leader degree is designed for experienced teachers who hold a current teaching certificate, wish to earn a Master's degree, desire to become more involved in leadership activities within their school, but do not want to become principals. It consists of 32 hours of graduate credit which focuses on improvement of instruction via assessment, curriculum design, and action research. Teacher leaders remain in the classroom and influence others to enhance teaching and learning, which will result in school improvement. Some of the major topics to be addressed in coursework include team building, reaching consensus, learning communities, adult learning practices, interpersonal relationships, group facilitation, and diversity.
The Department of Professional Education at Northwest Missouri State University has a rich history of producing highly qualified candidates for Missouri school districts.
