Advance to site-based educational leadership.
Completion of this program opens the door to advancement into site-based educational leadership, including leadership positions in churches, private schools and other settings not requiring a principal’s license.
The point of coming to school is to uncover students’ talent and not just for me to tell them what they need to know. Twenty-first century students discover their own abilities when provided with real life learning, with a real life audience and a real life purpose. They must understand the end so that they can better accept the means.” – Matinga Ragatz, 2010 Michigan Teacher of the Year
